@Planetmosh @AnybodyBC reviews ‘Consumed’ by @Seprevation
If you feel like listening to some fresh death/thrash metal with a hint of old school sound, I have something to recommend to you. Formed in 2011, Seprevation, a four piece from Bristol are set to release their first full-length album, ‘Consumed‘.
‘Consumed’ is a set of ten ass-kicking death/thrash metal tracks that blasts in at 40 minutes in total. The opening track ‘Divine Devastation’ starts with a melodic intro and after more than a minute storms in with a fast tempo, which romps through whole the album. There is great work on guitar riffs and the solid built rhythm with varied growly/harsh vocals might just crack your head. It sounds like a combination of everything in death and thrash metal you might like: speed, beautiful sound of the guitars for fast and short solos, Chuck Schuldiner – like vocal at moments, clear bass guitar lines and dark atmosphere.
‘Sea of Thoughts’ is one varied tempo track with quite a lot of guitar solos and it has the place of eight in the album. Worth mentioning, that it will be the first familiar song for those who ahave been following Seprevation since their inception. This track was on their first ‘Ritual Abuse’ EP and most likely because of its sea of remarkable guitar parts and death metal sound, made it to the full-length album as well.
As for the quite young band, the album (which is the follow up to the ‘Ritual Abuse’ EP) is really high quality and proves their promise as a solid English death/thrash metal band. There is nothing more to add, just take it, enjoy it, headbang to the rhythm and check this neck-breaking four-piece on the stage!
Reviewers pick: ‘In Torment They Burn’ for its wonderful rhythm part, which makes you wanna headbang all the time.
On ‘Consumed’, Seprevation has definitely shown how to make big entrance with a debut album. It is one of the most head cracking, neck-breaking albums from a band this young I have listened to in years!
‘Consumed’ by Seprevation was released on 10th of May, 2014.
