I had never heard of Cerekloth before, but I sure hope I'll be hearing these guys again in the future. This is raw, old school, no-frills Death Metal that bets on a grim atmosphere maintained through a mostly medium-to-fast pace, as opposed to hyperspeed guitars and blast beats. I love the guitars on this – a mix of basic/generic old school Death Metal with a more intricate style that almost creates an atmosphere in itself – kind of a mystery-meets-horror vibe, with attitude to boot. The vocals are closer to Death/Thrash than pure Death; raspy growls that fit like a glove. As a bonus, this stuff is also pretty catchy, so that's a 14 minute that lasts all day. ;) Speaking of which, only 14 minutes of this is pure torture, so let's hope for a full-length soon.
