Striking while the iron's hot, Multiversal Abattoir follows close on the heels
of FACELESS BURIAL's debut album, Grotesque Miscreation. Here, the
Australian power-trio simply sharpen their blades - and those blades are
already extremely sharp, 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
spiraling 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.
And yet again, with this wealth of influence and a heaving foundation on
which to stand, FACELESS BURIAL exude a charisma all their own, more
so than ever on Multiversal Abattoir. Largely, it comes down to the
songwriting itself; forever twisting and never stagnating, each song
revealing new corridors through which to spelunk, and efficiently. It's no so
much a restless blast through scattershot ideas as it is an endlessly
malforming entity making rude shapes - and sending them down to be
sliced and sluiced in a very literal Multiversal Abattoir. And that's to say
nothing of the utterly powerful production, which once again is both death
metal classicism to a T and an absolutely skillful balance between clear 'n'
cutting and murky 'n' malodorous.
The bandwagon is already rolling for FACELESS BURIAL. Step forward to
the Multiversal Abattoir or get slaughtered anyway!
