A new breed arises with the latest upcoming release from Miasma Records and Vomit your Shirt: “Xenomorphic Creation” by Phrymerial. the deathcore 5 from Costa Brava in the eastern shores of our neighbors in Spain: John Puig (Vox), Jeshua Roche (Drums), Alex Samolia (Bass), Alex Lastra (Guitar), Dany Morton (Guitar). Respect to these dudes for wearing their colors right and proud, they don’t try to ride Slams popularity train by calling themselves SlamCore, this is just the kind of deathcore that will scare those Suicide Silence pansies away, who wants to have aliens eggs force fed to you through a spider dick anyway… also just the kind of deathcore that will give wife beater slamboys all kinds of funny uncomfortable feelings, deep down in the nether regions, although they will lie to their friends saying that they still prefer shit that has 300 views on YouTube (because its bad, not because its “underground”).
Coming back strong since their debut in 2016 “The Human Cleansing”, they show the evolution of their skills not only as musicians, but as professionals, this is a very much needed improvement since you can (or at least will be able to) tell, the quality is sky high and doesn’t sound like it’s being played in a Happy Meal toy. They are much heavier on breakdowns, sudden displays of virility and musicianship skills and would you believe it, there’s a massive mouthgina birthing hundreds of alien tadpoles in the album art cover, if that doesn’t make you horny, you must be sick in the head or some shit.
We open up with Genesis, I shit you not this should be the opening music for Killing Floor 3, if that’s even a remote possibility, a slow melody accompanied by the buzzing of high pitch guitar in the background preparing you for the impending doom that is about to, and unavoidably, get you, ending with a little taste of the upcoming heaviness with a few above average breakdowns.
Anunnaki Sperm Shot comes next. I tried googling what Anunnaki means and Google says its a group of deities that appear in the Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, and Babylonian Mythology, they created Sumerian culture by enslaving human kind! Either these guys are into some real messed up kinks or I’m having whatever they are having.
After I clear all of the anunnaki seed out of my ears I can tell these guys dont fuck around. Blasting and breakdowning is their game as Phrymerial display how they can unite technical death, deathcore, and slam into what seems to be the game changer of the year, and we are just starting!
Atanathos, meaning “immortal”, is the third and probably the most psychedelic out of all, its very hard to resist not focusing on the heaviness and fast tracking melodies mixed within the mess of Rings of Saturn style tapping, I would write more about it but its hard to honestly convey what these guys are doing musically, in words, I guess you’ll have to experience it yourself.
Intramolecular Massacre again features the slow melodic guitar and hard hitting riffs we had a taste of earlier disguised as a solo, the perfect soundtrack to impale little colonials on your tail blade, one of the hardest breakdowns I ever heard and riffs that will make OSDM fans jealous they didn’t come up with it first, too bad you like a dead genre.
The Human Cleansing II, which sounds a lot like a call back to their debut album intro, if not a total remake after all. I had to give both a few listens but since the first one is in anime piano i cannot listen to it, my testosterone levels are too high right now. Beautifully composed and slowly slipping more into the Core aspect of things. At least it’s not anime piano.
Present of Our Gods, a kick straight to the nuts unusually starting with a breakdown and further developing into faster and more melodic pantheonic gifts to our ears, If you cut all these songs into small sections whenever the rhythm changes, you could have a TechGrindSlamXenoCore project!
Then comes Sigha, funny enough it is what the northern Portuguese metal fans say when they are about to go into the pit, “SIGA!”, but don’t say it in Germany, you will be arrested. Poetic enough it starts hard and fast so you can “SIGA!” your way to an induced soundwave coma. Also Sigha being a Urdu word whose meaning makes no sense because there are so many.
C-137, is probably the coolest song in the album and sadly the most unfortunately named, nobody is perfect and although these guys are mind blowing musicians, they like Rick and Morty and therefore they must be autistic. In this song imagine you are driving a killdozer through a crowd and then you are interrupted by the sound of R2D2 pleasuring himself and the sudden voice of 2018s alcoholic teletubby and dead meme, Rick Sanchez.
If there are any survivors remember that Phrymerials “Xenomorphic Creation” will release on the 20th of this month! A sure must have for for any fan of modern and out of the ordinary extreme music.
