Holocaust of Terrestrial Empires comprises 18 minutes of utterly dark & devastating death metal of the highest order.
Swamp Beast are up first, with two tracks of hammering, cavernous grind that nevertheless possess a frightening sense of clarity. Hailing from Los Angeles and with a demo prior to this recording, this Swamp Beast are well on their way to a world-eating sound.
Void Terror likewise have a demo prior to this split and are no less gutted in their approach. Their two tracks here take a more blackened approach, trawling within the gutter and emitting an abyssic atmosphere that suggests more mastery to come from this Kentucky quartet.
Side A - Swamp Beast:
1. Formless Spawn
2. Chant Of Bolotnik
Side B - Void Terror:
