Striking while the iron’s hot, Multiversal Abattoir follows close on the heels of Faceless Burial’s debut album, Grotesque Miscreation, at the beginning of 2018. Here, the Australian power-trio simply sharpen their blades, possessing unimaginable death metal might.
Theirs is an unremittingly dark and dexterous sound which draws in a variety of death metal traditions: the gooey grind of early ’90s Finland, the spiralling surge of classic Tampa, the bazooka-blown fury of old Brazil, the atonal angularity ushered in by Immolation, and the cacophonous caverns traveled by Incantation.
