Premiere: Corpsehammer Will Give You The Kiss Of Death On “Beso Infame”
Primal blackened madness! Corpsehammer‘s debut is an unholy onslaught of Scandinavian-style melodic black metal and that archaic death/thrash hybrid sound synonymous with the South American scene. In short, it’s shit-yer-pants level good.
Turns out there’s a damn good reason for the dichotomy found within their sound. The trio who comprise Corpsehammer are from quite disparate ends of the metal scene, with members hailing from Chile and Sweden. Yes, both the frost-chilled Scandinavian squalls and the barbaric blasting that burns below the equator are finally fighting side-by-side, and the combination makes each element exponentially more deadly. The raw riffing style resembles that of Chilean countrymen Invocation Spells, harnessing the ferocity of first-wave but leaving behind the essentially unlistenable production aesthetic. The vocals are suitably mental and are probably best heard rather than described. Honestly, I don’t know why I’m still telling you about this. The band is called Corpsehammer. You already know if this is your thing, you stopped reading and hit play after the title.
Rips, don’t it? Here’s what the band have to say about the track’s theme –
Beso infame is a aggressive serpent but in it’s coil there is calm before the storm, as Satan made his way through the paradise. The concept of the song is about devil worshipping and the female role in the occult (beso infame stands for osculum infame)
Posesión will be released on September 1st through Morbid Skull Records on a cassette run limited to 200 copies. Pre-order your copy here.
