WOMBBATH – Internal Caustic Torments (CD)
Swedish death metal lunatics Wombbath have finally had their 1993 cult, underground release “Internal Caustic Torments” reissued on vinyl in limited edition packaging. 100 of these will be issued on cyan and blue vinyl, which is sure to make a killer collectors item.
Okay, enough with the packaging and onto the music found on this awesome release. Wombbath took the best elements from Grave, Unleashed, Massacre and Deicide, and put them all into their debut “Internal Caustic Torments”, which was originally released in 2003. When you combine all of these evil sounds and influences, you’ve the sounds of hell breathing fire down your back, leaving you for charred beyond recognition.
The guitars come at you like a hungry pack of wild dogs out to mow you down like a piece of dead meat, literally. Their drumming sounds like a series of micro explosions ready to take out the enemy in the corpse-ridden trenches of death. This is true death metal, done the old school way, with no overdubs, effects or drum triggers.
Wombbath is supposedly active as a band, and I definitely look forward to checking out their new studio material should they ever compose anything new.
Let Wombbath’s ungodly brutality kick your ass and show you what true death metal is a about.
Highly worth your time, so check it out. [Chaos Records] Sarjoo Devani
