"THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN
BEYOND THE GRACE OF GOD"
VISCERAL THRONE rose from the ashes of ROTTED REBIRTH back in 2009.
These guys play a very heavy and thick brutal Death Metal style. "THOSE WHO
HAVE FALLEN BEYOND THE GRACE OF GOD" is the bands newest offering,
which is a five song EP. Track number five a cover of INTERNAL SUFFERING's
"Colossal Vortex". The music hear is a mash up of old meets new. The thick and brutal
old school sound is there with some newer and slightly more technical sounding styles.
They throw in some straight forward fast blast beats and then they will pull back and do
some slow dragged out beats that almost have a bit of a Sludge Metal feel to it. The
chugging grooved out guitars was my favorite part as well as the stop and start
breakdowns. The vocals of Dylan Cox are done in a low low ended Death gurgle style
that reminded me a little of FLESHGRIND. This is an old school great for the new
school fans. If you were to take bands like FLESHGRIND, DYING FETUS,
LIVIDITY, PUTRID PILE, MORTAL DECAY & REPUDILATION mix them all up,
you would get VISCERAL THRONE. Now go get this release!!!
