A Birth in Death

Rated 3.33/5 (66.67%) (6 Votes)

Sepulchral Curse is a new Death Metal outfit from the land of a thousands lakes, drunken bastards and dorks. They were just formed in early 2013, however Sepulchral Curse does have a seasoned line-up; each band member has played in or is still active in other bands including Devastracktor, Urgamla, Gambanteinn, Solothus and others.

Death Metal has come a long way in Finland in the past 3-5 years, especially the old school type, so a band like Sepulchral Curse no longer surprises me. Sepulchral Curse simply continues what all the Krypts, Maveths, Desolate Shrines, Swalloweds, Stench of Decays, Amputorys and many others started during this second invasion of Finnish Death Metal acts.

The band's uncompromisingly brutal, sinister and heavy Death Metal is basically your meat-and-potatoes type of thing. In other words, they sound so familiar and safe that it's almost a crime to like them (which I do, to a certain extent). They do nothing to provide a "wow!" feeling whatsoever on this 4-track MCD titled A Birth in Death. The other side of the coin is that their music absolutely screams of the total murkiness and gloomy brutality of pure Finnish Death Metal, which is the side that I wanted to hear, feel and experience myself.

If you are any aware of the "old school Finnish Death Metal" sound and even admit to loving it, then you should feel right at home in Sepulchral Curse's company. I won't say any more; let the music do the talking.
