Metal / Re: EXCORIATE (Chile) ... Of the ghastly stench Tape out now! Death metal
« Last post by gabalgabow on September 08, 2017, 12:32:24 AM »
Trois nouvelles chroniques d'EXCORIATE ont été publiées!

WINGS OF DEATH Webzine (Hol):
Excoriate is een van de vele bands uit Zuid-Amerika (in dit geval uit Chili) die nog zo rauw en authentiek musiceren dat het eigenlijk niet meer in deze tijd past. Natuurlijk heeft deze pure, eerlijke aanpak z'n charmes, de muziek kan ik ook prima hebben. Hun versie van old school death metal is vanwege de aanpak zo duister dat het gelijk raakvlakken heeft met doom(death), ondanks het soms toch best opgefokte tempo.
De band bestaat sinds 2002, en heeft sindsdien alleen maar demo's en splits uitgebracht. Het meest recente werkstukje heet ... Of the Ghastly Stench, en is door het Franse Nihilistic Holocaust op tape (jawel, zo old school) uitgebracht; en grappig genoeg ook digitaal. Het beste van twee werelden.
Het begrip underground lijkt daarmee in zekere zin achterhaald, omdat muziek simpelweg op eenvoudige wijze wereldwijd voor het voetlicht gebracht kan worden. Aan de andere kant: het blijft evident dat obscure metal als die van Excoriate zich zeker in productioneel opzicht niet kan meten met die van meer gekende acts. Dus de underground-gedachte blijft in die zin gehandhaafd.
Gelukkig doet de karige productie niks af aan de muzikale bedoelingen en de vaardigheden van de deelnemende muzikanten. Want daar is in mijn beleving niks mis mee. Vooral het aanwezige, logge basgeluid drukt de band de doomy hoek van de death metal in, al zijn er in de karige blastpassages net zo goed raakvlakken met black metal. Dit is gewoon goudeerlijke old school extreme metal, gemaakt door muzikanten met het hart op de juiste plaats. Alsof we nog steeds rond pak 'm beet 1990 zitten. Niet zeuren, gewoon ff luisteren!

One prevalent thing that I have noticed about record labels these days I that more and more of them seem to have a target audience – More so than merely being a ‘Metal’ label, for instance (such as is the case with Nuclear Blast). These days many smaller, more specialized labels can be found, who focus on one specific subgenre and almost or completely exclusively record and release bands and albums from within this genre. One such example would be Nihilistic Holocaust, whose main focus is on underground Death Metal, the way it is supposed to be played.
The newest record that has found its way across my doors threshold from this label is called … Of The Ghastly Stench and is the fifth release from Chilean Death Metallers Excoriate – A true underground act, both in sound and in releases. All of said releases have been either Demos of Split albums, and … Of The Ghastly Stench is no exception, being a Demo Tape (as far as I can tell, the band almost exclusively sell their records as cassettes) showcasing four old-school tracks, which combined roughly hit the half-hour mark.
Now, for those of you who are expecting an exciting new release pushing the boundaries of what Death Metal can and cannot be, whether that is a more melodic approach or perhaps combined with another genre… You will not find what you are looking for.
What you instead will discover, is a throwback to what the genre was back in the late eighties, when bands such as Bolt Thrower Suffocation and Entombed reigned supreme. Excoriate magnificently encapsulates everything that made the genre great as well as showing off what muscle this musical approach had both back in the day, but even more so today.
Excoriate has a very slow, bas-fuelled approach to their music, something that I personally rarely see these days (perhaps I would if I delved more in the Doom Metal genre – But I digress). This is very evident on both the introductive track ”Teofisto”, as well as the first actual track ”Oh! Peaceful Derketa”, the coherent sound of which is a prime example of what this Chile-based quintet is capable of.
A release for fans of the old-fashioned Death Metal approach (and as such it is aptly released on Cassette), one recommended for fans of, as stated above, fans of Bolt Thrower, Sufocation and Entombed.

When ‘…Of The Gastly Stench’ arrived at my doorstep, I guessed the mighty Exmortis (U.S.A.) finally was resurrected from the grave. After a second look I figured out I was wrong. Excoriate’s logo has some similarities with Exmortis’ logo I think. Anyway, this is Excoriate I’m talking about here. The band hails from Chile, has released some demo’s and splits with Demonic Rage (‘Death Communion’) and Horrifying (‘A Dismal Journey To The Oblivion’).
Now the band releases a third demo that holds four tracks. All of them already were available through the split CD with Horrifying (2015) so I don’t know what’s the added value of this release? To me, the ‘…Of The Gastly Stench’ demo is a great first acquaintance with Excoriate, a band that plays raw underground death metal with some black metal influences which is not for the faint of hearted.
