parasitic*nebula Behold coinsurers of Doom, a thick slice of poisonous funeralized lead pipe to the back of the head death-crawl pie with locusts and flies on the side. These thunderous old school doom-laden riffs remind me of Incantation’s slowed down ear-crushing dirges like Unto Infinite Twilight Majesty of Infernal Damnatic for example. This nostalgia is summoned forth with good reason - OG John McEntee of Incantation is in the line-up roasting this Beastly BBQ with his special psychotic seasoning. Favorite track: The Cryptic Void.

Tyme More like Beast of Riffelation! Slow, grinding, twisting, writhing; the guitar lines churn under McEntee's guttural growls and shrieks in a symphony most sick.

Come on in kids, the water is thick with blood.

IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present BEAST OF REVELATION's striking debut album, The Ancient Ritual of Death, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Although a brand-new entity in name, BEAST OF REVELATION are a power-trio comprising a vast wealth of experience: drummer Bob Bagchus (HELLEHOND, Infidel Reich, ex-Asphyx, Grand Supreme Blood Court, Soulburn et. al.), guitarist/bassist A.J. van Drenth (Temple, Throne, ex-Beyond Belief), and Incantation's John McEntee on vocals. The band's first public recording, The Ancient Ritual of Death says everything it needs to in its title: this is crushingly heavy doom-death from the netherworld. A seemingly simple formula but one that takes a certain type of mastery to harness, BEAST OF REVELATION quickly proceed to s-l-o-w-l-y fucking CRUSH the listener with their merciless 'n' morbid doom metal devastation. Theirs is a patient pulse, and each wave of unremitting heaviness washes over the listener with a forlorn filth that's familiar yet utterly addicting all the same.

Naturally, references can be made to the members' past and present bands, but that's only because each of these BEASTs OF REVELATION have had such a significant hand in shaping the death metal underground the past 30-plus years. Here, at last joined in The Ancient Ritual of Death, shall we find the sweet succor of the grave. Likewise masterful cover artwork courtesy of Manuel Tinnemans only makes that embrace all the more doomed.
