ZOM – Flesh Assimilation (CD)
Ireland’s abyssic servants and extreme music elitists ZOM play a chaotic, deathly and a darkened blend of black/death metal music that totally engulfs the soul in utter darkness.
“Flesh Assimilation” is not an easy listen by any stretch of the imagination due to its rampant mood changes, eclectic extreme metal influences and a completely darkened approach to all of their 7 songs on offer here. Mind you, this will take you at least a few good listens before you start mutilating your own flesh in tribute to the mighty goat lord of the fiery world below. ZOM definitely knows how to create wicked sounds on this album, from slow, dirge driven guitar parts to the pandemonium-like fast parts, on throughout this album. The vocals, not much hope, as they’re freaking depressive, yet agonizingly torturous in the darkest sense of the word. You feel the death and torture taking over the the vocalist, as he barely pushes out his last words, before facing the executioner’s chrome wielding sword.
“Flesh Assimilation” is meant for those listeners who prefer to die an ugly death, without any shame, as they’re not afraid to stare into death’s eyes in its ugliest form.
You’ve been warned here, ZOM do not play your typical run of the mill black metal music, as this is even more extreme than extreme. Prepare for your soul to be raped by this ugly horned beast known as ZOM.
