After two demos and an impressive EP, Finland’s Gorephilia land a deadly strike with their debut album “Embodiment of Death.” “Embodiment of Death” is the likely continuation of the band’s 2011 “Ascend to Chaos”. While “Ascend to Chaos” showcased the band’s talent and execution, “Embodiment of Death” ups the ante, putting this five-piece Finnish band on showcase. Terrific songwriting, terrorizing riffs and punishing drum work further display the band’s skill.
Thirty-six minutes spanning eight tracks; “Embodiment of Death” is no retro album but pure, unadulterated death metal straight from the depths of Finland. With influences such as Sadistic Intent, early Morbid Angel and more, “Embodiment of Death” is exactly what title suggests.
