Album Review

Prosanctus Inferi – ‘Red Streams of Flesh’ – [Nuclear War Now! Productions]

Lord Gravestench   11/17/2020   12-inch, A Library

Black/death metal (or ‘war metal,’ if you like) from the Ohio duo of guitarist/bassist/growler Jake Kohn (formerly of Father Befouled and Black Funeral) and drummer Jeremy Spears, hailing Satan together since 2005 and still going strong today. This 2011 EP saw release in between the band’s first (2010) and second (2013) albums. Taut, hammering, relatively short songs that lean more in the death metal direction favoured by influences like Angelcorpse and Morbosidad than toward the blackened chaos of Blasphemy or Profanatica, although those latter two bands still lurk in the background on this. Melodic old-school riffage, bestial rasps, and deadly-accurate anti-aircraft drums. A1 is an experimental intro. Plays at 45RPM.

Not exactly groundbreaking, but a reliable vintage nonetheless. Their sound got more ‘out-there’ on later albums. A great live band, too.
