Album Review

Cthonica – “Lesser Incantations of Chthonic Lore, The” – [Sentient Ruin Laboratories]

whngr   5/15/2021   12-inch, A Library

Venezuelan Blasphemous Dirge/Thrash  Torrential sheets of blood rain upon shrieking visages of horror and gloom.

Hearts beating in time to double kicks running in parallel relentlessly before fading into the distance.

Demons possess shattered minds that sway to the forlorn, wavering guitar solos.

Unintelligible voices amidst throbbing pulses of white noise.

Grinding, wreching, guttural bellows. Woeful bleats. A final gasp? Interludes of staticky, pulsing space.

Hair lashing… the blood has begun to thicken. The Dark Ones are pleased.

The steel must be honed.

This 2 piece Black/Death Metal project hails from Caracas and state their lyrical  themes as: Death, Perversion, Spiritual decay, Esotericism, Unreasoning, and Occult alchemy… whatever that means. All that I hear is the righteous veneration of impending obliteration.
