Godless - Sic Luceat Vacuum Nostrum

GODLESS - Sic Luceat Vacuum Nostrum (ME SACO UN OJO - MLP 2016)
No doubt, Chilean death metal commandos belong to my favourite bands and I'm always pleased to hear more and more of them. Here's another one, which strikes with some excellent sounds and bring restless, insane massacre. Godless aren't newcomers, I already had some of their releases: "Irreligiosus Nemine Discrepante" double 7" EP, "Ecce Homo: Post Lux TenebrasPulsio XIII Ultima Ratio" album and split 7"EP with Unaussprechlichen Kulten, so I knew their quality and that they're no bullshit. This new MLP, released by Me Saco Un Ojo, brings another dose of monstrous, brutal death metal and I have to say that this is the best effort from Godless so far. I can hear great improvement in basically everything, starting from songwriting, great technical skills of the band members and finishing with the best production they achieved so far. I liked "Irreligious..." and "Ecce...", but damn, "Sic Luceat Vacuum Nostrum" takes them to new level, I think, and now Godless can match the quality of my favourite Chilean beasts, Unaussprechlichen Kulten and Demonic Rage. 
It's interesting that many of these Chilean hordes play similar type of malicious, dark death metal, very much in the vein of Incantation, Funebrarum, Immolation, Dead Congregation or Morpheus Descends. They must really love this shit there. I have to say that all these Chilean bands sound really honest and passionate, there's a lot of dedication for death metal in them. Godless is very much alike and their music has this savage and uncompromising, underground feeling. It is also soaked with brutality and evilness, and it's also damn powerful and dynamic stuff that truly crushes the bones. For "Sic Luceat Vacuum Nostrum" they came up with excellent riffs, I love that massive and truly slaying sound of it, with merciless, vicious blasting parts and crushing, heavy slow bits, which will leave your flesh completely dismembered.  
Yeah, these are fuckin sweet 16 minutes of music. These three songs are bestial and I can guarantee the best quality from Godless. More so, this vinyl looks fantastic, the artwork is just killer and etching on side B is something truly extra. Very recommended release then, grab a copy before these 500 pieces are gone! 
Final rate: 80/100
