Having a hard time clicking that 'Buy' button and supporting Oraculum? Rest easy. You've come to the right place for incredible death metal from Chile. Think Bolt Thrower with Spanish fervour.
Favorite track: The Vessel Of Orichalcum.
This is some damn good old school, scratchy death metal. This beeing their actual debut makes it even more impressive. Fans of old school, occult war/black/death metal will definitly enjoy this.
"Despite being newcomers, this Chilean power-trio have their sound nailed down, HARD: pulsing, doom-dredging Metal of Death that's red-eyed and composed in equal measures, manic and maniacal and yet exuding the confidence of veterans.
"Oraculum state that their influences are Bolt Thrower, Morgoth, Order From Chaos, Sadistik Exekution, Poison (Germany), and their native heroes Pentagram, and while residual traces of each can be heard across the four bruised 'n' battering tracks on Sorcery of the Damned, the manner in which they splice and dice this deathly DNA is theirs alone.
"Above all, the band's grasp of songcraft suggests the start of something monumental, each one moving memorably with depth and dynamics. Sorcery of the Damned is truly bewitching..."
The track listing is as follows:
1. The Vessel of Orichalcum

This album takes me to the darkest places. The whole vibe and overall feel of the album is that of absolute dread, but also beauty. The overall mix of death metal, black metal and some jazz is perfect and sound is unique and fresh. Waiting in anticipation of album 2! chiragrajagopal

Weirdo death metal that calls to mind a bit of Demilich and a lot of the sadly-defunct Howls of Ebb, but presented in a more aggressive package, this is an ever-shifting yet tightly-crafted descent into the depths of hell. In the hands of lesser musicians, these wild compositions would have skidded off of the tracks into quite the train wreck, but on Heptaedrone we are treated to seamless transitions of riff after glorious riff, with thunderous percussion and bass to anchor it all. Glorious! Ippocalyptica
