Blood Incantation caused quite a stir with Hidden History of the Human Race, so I figured it was as good a time as any to visit their back catalog. This was their debut EP way back in 2015, and I honestly like this one a little better. This is the same brand of murky Tech Death with killer riffs, oddball time signatures, and extraterrestrial lyrical themes that they peddled on their latest release, but with less of the bloat and ambient fiddling that held it back. It still has a production that's maybe a little too murky, as a bit more clarity could really strengthen the material, but songs like the frigid "Hovering Lifeless" and album closer "Subterranean Aeon" are all strong pieces of esoteric Death Metal that knows how to be intricate without devolving into jittering wankery. If you liked Hidden History, then you'll dig this too.
