That mighty “F” word is important here, as no matter which variant of their thrashy proggy melo/tech-death the band lean into, it’s impossible to not just sit in awe at how the band can craft some of the most joyful extreme metal produced in a long time.
The Day Of The Beast have absolutely delivered one Hell of a thrill ride with their Prosthetic debut. Indisputably Carnivorous takes the wheel from stylistic forebears like Skeletonwitch, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Revocation and provides a wonderful sonic road trip.
Looking for new music? We got you. Here are four bands to check out, from the haunting ambiance of Arepo, to the riot grrrl…
How is it humanly possible for a band’s best output to come 15 albums in? Well, if you’re legendary death metal act Cannibal Corpse, you expect nothing…
The reason it’s such a successful record is not because it pulls at my nostalgic heart strings but how it takes a known playbook at messes with it. As someone who literally grew up with this music, it’s a huge credit to Wristmeetrazor that I am constantly, wonderfully surprised from track to track.

So that’s where we are with Perturbator, an artist who refuses to be confined by artificial genre limits or labels. If you’re worried that Lustful Sacraments will be a letdown compared to The Uncanny Valley, go in with an open mind, and you’ll be rewarded with some of the heaviest, most haunting electronic music of the year.
