There's simply nothing that can stop the determined march of extreme-sounding Chilean Metal bands, especially those playing Death Metal. Putrid Evocation is yet another band in the growing line of Chilean Metal troops determined to make themselves heard in the underground extreme Metal community. The band's most recent release, the 7-track EP Blackness Enshroud, is a good way to start and makes some serious noise.
Blackness Enshroud is this duo's first "commercial" release, in that it is available for sale, not just for generating label interest. The guys in the band have chosen a putrid road that harkens back to cult Finnish Death Metal veterans Abhorrence, especially the Vulgar Necrolatry demo. Ominously murky, wonderfully brutal, murderously grinding and very unpolished Death Metal is what Putrid Evocation churn out on this EP and they do it well, even if it is slightly unoriginal and far from unique. There is still something appealing in Putrid Evocation's flesh-ripping sonic torment that begs a few extra spins. Much to my surprise, even the cover of Nihilist's "Supposed to Rot" stays amazingly true to the original demo version from the Swedish Death Metal maestros themselves.
So, the question is, will this stuff shred your body? I believe so.
