Satanic Tradition in Death Metal
Italian Horrid is not what people commonly call Blackened Death Metal or Black/Death Metal. They are indeed an old school death metal band with very satanic lyrics which put them in the same pantheon of Deicide and Morbid Angel.
Although not similar to the aforementioned bands their music sounds like a crossover of Death, Autopsy, Master, Entombed and other old school and classic bands.
The art was made by Chris Moyen so it’s beautiful.
Sacrilegious Fornication brings to the forefront that classic death metal feeling from the beginning of the nineties with raw riffs and mid tempo (for the standards of today) rhythm session.
Vortex of Primordial Chaos brings more intricate phrases and changes of tempo while the guttural vocals spew fury and hate towards the listener.
But my fave is Necromancy with pure and legit death metal feeling dogged to exterminate the deathbangers with top shelf music.
Demonic Sadocarnage brings more old school riffs to the fold.
The other tracks follow suit and are not really different from the others, and I don’t believe this is a flaw or lack of creativity; it’s just the guys sticking to their guns!
There is a ninth track which is a Hellhammer‘s cover Massacra but unfortunately it was omitted from the promo I’ve received.
All in all Sacrilegious Fornication is a CD that will satisfy fans of roughest death metal in the purest form. Totally recommended.
Sacrilegious Fornication is going to be released on May 13th on Dunkelheit Produktionen
