The good old filthy Death Metal worship is once again glorified by Spanish sordid Death Metallers GRAVEYARD, with their latest blitz “The Altar Of Sculpted Skulls” Mini-CD. Three years after the debut full-length album “One With The Dead”, the band gathered enough material for an EP; thus capturing the perfect essence of festering Death Metal on “The Altar Of Sculpted Skulls”.
Fronting the album cover features the breathtaking and intricate artwork by Matt 'Putrid' Carr (Autopsy, Impetigo, Coffins, Hooded Menace, etc). With four never-before-released tracks in tandem with two older remixed and re-mastered tracks, “The Altar Of Sculpted Skulls” is an ugly bloodbath of down-tuned buzzsaw guitars, Swe-beats and the undeniable bone-chilling hellish vibe that is reminiscent of the early incarnation of Swedish Death Metal insanity!

Judge this book by its cover, because Antikatastaseis is dizzying, oppressive, and unsettling, but offers just enough hope to keep you from trying to end it all. Dissonant riffs and tumultuous drumming are interspersed with small melodic movements just as your anxiety is reaching its peak, sucking you back in for another round of chaos and confusion. This is no doubt a challenging listen, but there is pay off and it's surprisingly reassuring. zirtonic
