CAECUS – Affliction

CAECUS – Affliction

caecus_affliction coverScottish full-time cavernous Death Metal. That’s our quick definition of CAECUS after listening a few times to their opening demo “Affliction”. No space for tender melodies or intros. This effort starts directly with brutality into your hears. Harsh groovy guitars and cavernous gutturals commanded by an impressive blastbeats drums work that sets the pace of each one of the three songs. But you’ll also find some down-tempo bass & drums work, as in the initial momments of the second song or throughout the last track, written in general depressive ambience, ending with a dark leep into an eerie void, showing that Caecus composition is not only about speed. Following in the veins of Dead Congregation but with some Arkhon Infaustus sparks, the deep frightening voice guides our souls through the dark and macabre environment of Affliction. Nine direct minutes set to be released through Blood Harvest Records next 30th November.

Could the academy give an Oscar to a short film? Neither can us with a higher note to such a fast EP. So we’ll be following the news coming from Scotland in order to raise this initial 8/10 mark. An impressive first shout to the world. You can listen to the full stream here.

8/10
