Veteran Swedish unit Setherial returns with a new album that encompasses the true diabolical spirit of black metal on EKPYROSIS. Emblazoned with slicing riffs, ominous atmosphere, and a newfound sense of variation within the songwriting, this evil eight-track excursion sticks close to the familiar corpsepainted gameplan with flurries of durable tempo changes and a solid display of venomous vocal vitriol and malevolent rhythmic blasts leading the charge while a tastefully-strewn inclusion of keyboards adds some shading to the overall ferocious flavor. Providing the total black metal experience with the trademark imagery and music working together in symbiosis, Setherial unleash a powerfully driven meat and potatoes slab of hell laden in brutality.
