VRENTH - BAPTISM DEATH - BLACK VINYL
Comprised of members of Ruin, Necrosic, Ascended Dead, Exhumed, Gravehill, and multiple others, Vrenth made their first appearance in the Spring of 2019 with a 3 track cassette demo on Death Metal Cult and later on Italy’s Dismal Fate Records.
And now, as a fitting end to 2020, comes Baptism Death - a hulking, slithering, and disgusting slob of a release, intent on trampling everything in its path, and leaving a wake of strewn limbs, steaming innards, and utter destruction.
As primitive and brutish as this record might seem at first listen, you’d be mistaken to pass it off as “low-IQ” death metal. On the contrary, this was clearly made by veterans of the death metal underground, and the musicianship and craftmanship should not be overlooked, even as you’re getting savagely drubbed and abused
