Energumen – Void Spiritualism 7″ Vinyl

Once again, Blood Harvest unveils a promising new death metal cult: Switzerland’s Energumen and their debut release, Void Spiritualism. Across three throbbing, ultra-violent tracks, Energumen drive deep into the proto-bestial sounds of ancient South America as well as forefathers like Blasphemy and Beherit. What results is a concise yet sometimes-sprawling 7″ EP that surges with a chaotic memorability, palpable dangerousness, and an attention to texture beyond the boundaries of the mere ‘bestial’.
