GNAW THEIR TONGUES
AN EPIPHANIC VOMITING OF BLOOD
Eerie Netherlands-based one man band Gnaw Their Tongues specializes in fleshing the darker elements of metal out judging by this latest seven-track endeavor. Sounding as if it were created to be the soundtrack to the sewer, AN EPIPHANIC VOMITING OF BLOOD is propelled by a menacing bottom end that anchors this creepy release's harbinigng doom meets piercing black metal arrangements, as mangled screams and tortured cries echo over the monstrous shape-shifting din of "Teeth that Leer Like Open Graves". Dissident atmospheres reveal a love for black metal's salad days on "The Sewer Rats of Calcutta" while grandiose symphonic effects assist the overall bombastic nihilism on the title cut. Embodying evil in an avant garde exposition, this bonechilling album is sure to ilicit more than a few sleepless nights.
