Masters of underworldly and foul death metal, trust me. Stationes Viae Mortis was very good already but this beats it by a league. If Impetuous Ritual are one end of the spectrum these are another.
Os, please! Do something about this name! Do you know how hard it is to find you on Bandcamp? :D :D
IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present OS' highly anticipated second album, Tehom, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Hailing from Hungary, the mysterious OS belong to the Bone Chapel Collective. Since their formation in 2014, they've released a demo, an EP, and their debut album, 2020's Stationes Viae Mortis. Now aligned with IRON BONEHEAD for the release of their second full-length, OS are poised to bring their world-eating sound up from the depths of the underground.
Armed with one of the thickest and scuzziest guitar tones around, the haunting ritualism that opens Tehom soon gives way to foulest filth: a crashing wave of disgusting, dingy riff-crunge somewhere between the most primitive bestial metal and Naked Whipping deathgrind. However, OS are exclusively driven by death energies, so lest anyone lumbers under the assumption that the quartet are but mere cavemen - although, that wouldn't necessarily be a slight to them in the least - unfold those tar-thick layers and feel the subtle tinge of the supernatural, the Beyond made manifest through simplicity of design. Indeed, Tehom is almost cruelly simple, but sublime is its feast...
Removing all the cool kid speak of OSDM, Dissonant, blah blah blah (get a grip idiots. Riffs are riffs and metal is metal), this album hits the spot and scratches those extreme itches. Worth your money and time, not silly meaningless labels. Recommended. 269
