Imprecation Unleashes “Swine Full of Maggots” From Diabolical Flames of the Ascended Plague Split With Black Blood Invocation

Holy host mutilating death metal band Imprecation issued forth “Swine Full of Maggots,” the first track from the Imprecation/Black Blood Invocation split entitled Diabolical Flames of the Ascended Plague due to see physical release on December 6, 2019.

Famous for building doom metal style groove into a blasphemous fusion of Incantation and Asphyx, Imprecation have of late explored more of the ritual and Danzig-style heavy metal aspects of their musical vision, “Swine Full of Maggots” combines brutal barebones death metal with grindcore-style interstitial riffs and a melodic pre-chorus which gives breathing room to the layers of riffing.

Following the Incantation model from its second and third albums, atmospheric elements influence the transition into the final chapter of the song, leading to more of a pure rhythm and dynamics approach which produces a mantra-like chant. This track raises expectations for the forthcoming album, going its own way in a time when most of the “mainstream underground” have imitated each other into heat-death.

    Seems like this release might be an improvement over the album they released earlier this year, which was merely decent at best. I’m hoping Blaspherian will release something of worth soon as well to continue the great contributions to Texas metal these bands made in the earlier part of this decade.
