Vile Ritual - Tongues Of The Exanimate
The atrocious occult hymns of Vile Ritual churn with incantations of eons past to realize a most disfigured vision of deviated and perverse blackened death metal ritualism. Born of the most sinister and arcane carnal rites, "Tongues of the Exanimate" sees the sounds of ghostly utterances travel over cavernous ambiance to create a disembodied, trance-like state, while inhumanly crushing riffs bludgeon the listener and entomb them in a suffocating and gruesome aural burial. Both horrific yet timelessly evocative, Vile Ritual's ancient and blood-drenched blackened death metal melds the feral atrocity of 90's bestial black metal acts like Von and Beherit with hallucinatory atmospheres and the crushing low end of old school death metal butchers like Infester, Rippikoulu, and Imprecation to create a brutal yet hypnotic hallucination of total arcane death metal savagery and abandon. Conjuring similar otherworldly death metal deformities as we've seen in deviant bands like Antediluvian, Necros Chrstos, Sect Pig and Chaos Echoes, "Tongues of the Exanimate" is the most recent manifestation in this obscure entity's foul but masterful reveling in total surrealistic ritual death metal butchery, a 12" vinyl and cassette tape compilation LP envisioned by the band and Sentient Ruin unison that combines three brand new and previously unreleased tracks along with a completely remixed and remastered revision of Vile Ritual's masterful 2019 self-tiled debut demo/EP.
