CADAVERIC POSSESSION - Desiccation (PUTRID CULT - CD 2020)
I never had a chance to listen to "The Malevolent Predestination" album or "Cadaveric ' Coronation" split (with Hell’s Coronation) from Cadaveric Possession, but when hearing " Desiccation" I feel quite interested to get those two efforts also. Cadaveric Possession are Polish duo, which brings us six bestial death / black metal anthems on this new CD and if you're into the harshest, most obscure and primitive forms of this music, which would also create the very diabolic and sinister atmosphere, then " Desiccation" will be up your street. A lot of influences from some Finnish or American death legions, but also from some Polish hordes such as and Bestial Raids, Cadaveric Possession does not waste time and simply shred from the very first second of their new filth.
By using the most simplistic means, they crush with a lot of killer slower riffs - and these slower parts are definitely my most favourite moments of their music. When played at the faster pace, the music becomes obviously more aggressive and chaotic, but it doesn't have that sinister aura of slower parts (this is probably why “Seven Candles on the Altar” is my least favourite song from this EP, because it’s the fastest piece, but I also don’t like some vocals from it). Frankly, Cadaveric Possession doesn't stand out with anything special from similar type of bands, they are quite mediocre when compared to some... And I cannot say that it would really be an album that I could listen to often. But occasionally, from time to time I definitely am in mood for something so obscure and primitive and as such, " Desiccation" definitely works very well.
