Solid your thoughts again 15 years or so. DEMIRICOUS had been hotly tipped as some type of subsequent large factor, a minimum of in excessive steel circles. The Indianapolis quartet launched two certifiably ripping albums — “One (Hellbound)” (2006) and “Two (Poverty)” (2007) — and sounded very very similar to the way forward for barbaric, genre-fluid thrash. Maybe most importantly, DEMIRICOUS got an enthusiastic thumbs-up by no much less an icon than Kerry King. If the SLAYER guitarist overtly sings your praises, you have to be doing one thing good, as a result of King has seldom been within the behavior of plugging different bands. Sadly, DEMIRICOUS disappeared shortly after their second album, and referred to as it quits altogether in 2011. Potential, as they are saying, denied.
They’re again now, in fact. “III: Chaotic Deadly” posits the notion that the final 15 years by no means occurred, and DEMIRICOUS sound each bit as livid, brutish and unrelenting as they did on these first two information. The intervening years have sharpened their songwriting expertise and, understandably, made them about 12 instances angrier. Nonetheless rooted in a refined mix of turbo-charged thrash, ultra-hooky dying steel and grinding, blackened hostility, these songs quantity to a fearsome assertion of renewed intent.
DEMIRICOUS have loads of conventional components of their music, however it’s the sheer ferocity that they apply to each final one among them that lifts this into a unique realm. Erupting from a black soup of creepy atmosphere, opener “Unconditional Hate” has the pummeling gait of a rampaging panzer, and frontman Nate Olp has the swivel-eyed depth to match it. Each “Terminal Future” and “Smoke Chaser” incorporate melody and dynamics into an in any other case all-out onslaught, with the latter boasting an indecent variety of nice riffs, underpinned by machine-gun kicks and pitiless blasting that owe extra to MARDUK than MEGADETH. Equally, “Cruel Slut Cult” is a jarring burst of misanthropy, imbued with the feral grandeur of arcane, old-school dying steel however as exact and harmful as any SLAYER file. Always, DEMIRICOUS sound psychotically dedicated to inflicting as a lot injury as potential. They’re equally punishing at a slower tempo, too: nearer “Religion Crime” is as black as pitch on a moonless evening and steeped within the obsidian menace of esoteric doom.
A very long time coming however emphatically well worth the wait, “III: Chaotic Deadly” is a brutal and good re-introduction to a band that also sound hell-bent on conquering all.
