Sepulchral Rites – Death and Bloody Ritual (2021)

Sepulchral Rites
Released: January 18, 2021
Label: Dunkelheit Produktionen

Been waiting for this and its finally arrived, this female trio and there death metal attack in form of a 5 track EP and on a German label which is always good.

But lets get into it as the Intro comes in with a spoken word of which I have no clue what it is then the bass comes in as the rest of the band follows as this has a really mean and dirty vibe to it and gets faster as it goes, a really good opener.

As we go into Hidden Among Roots, and the pounding continues and after these two tracks I would call this more on the death thrash side as its got some good speed to it and the vocals are pretty good (Hellwitch) as she calls herself has a great set of pipes on her, excellent growls that up there with the big boys and the track is blazing as well with a break that adds more to the depth as it storms out with all guns cranked to the maximum.

And man does it get better, Possession has a different feel on the vocals as they seem even lower at the beginning but this comes right at you and all of a sudden this part a lead comes in, and its an all out war as the band rips up a storm and then breaks down to crushing but ignites again to the end.

Sacrifice, this sounds just right as its has crunchy beginning and then goes into a faster gear as the band is taking us to the ritual, some really grabbing riffs on here and the heavy slow breakdown puts more effect on the whole thing, heavy stuff!

It ends with Demented Rites and with a more doomy feeling at the start but then goes off with this really whirlwind of a riff that grabs before breaking down again as it fades off and that spoken word comes in again as it fades out.

A really strong release that I plan on getting as only the digital format is out, the label has set March 20th as the release date for vinyl and cd formats and pre sales are up already so get a copy.
