How many different ways can you say that something sounds brutal? There are times when I feel as though that is what the majority of my weekly output into the conglomeration of metalheads writing about what they hear ultimately amounts to, but you know what? As long as there is brutality to be written about, so be it.
This week's metal pick is the Dutch death metal band Antropomorphia's fourth full length studio album, "Sermon ov Wrath" (2017) released on Metal Blade Records.
The first thing that stood out to me about "Sermon-" (aside from the intriguingly grotesque artwork) was how damn hooky it is. Blackened mid-tempo grooving with a driving bass has sort of been the name of the game with Antropomorphia in the past - it still is by and large - but as actual songs, the tracks contained here basically crush anything the band has done before. Thoughtful arrangements and *sometimes* subtle guitar leads go a long way in increasing the value of repeated listening sessions; "Sermons-" actually becomes more enjoyable after you've heard it once or twice. (In that regard, this record feels like a leaner cut of their previous "Rites ov Perversion" (2014), which faltered, if only, in its brief spans of overindulgence).
And yet as I type that, I must proclaim that the album's watermark comes at the halfway point with the seven and a half-minute "Crown Ov the Dead", a gloriously doom trodden composition that moves with seamless grace between segments of murky grooving and surprising melody (keen ears will notice guest vocals by Ayperos of D.O.O.L., which actually go a long way in lifting this track to new heights).
If I could find any fault with this record, it's almost only that the band knows their own style a bit TOO well. A few songs feature progressions & riffs that just feel re-used by the time the needle stops, but other than that, this is a nice slag of beefy OSDM worth a listen or two, maybe a bit more if you worship at the feet of this style.
Highlights: "Sermon Ov Wrath", "Crown Ov the Dead", and "Within Her Pale Tomb Ov Putrid Lust".
