After the rapturous reception received for 2020’s A Resting Place For The Wrathful (included in our 5 Greatest UK Death Metal Albums Of 2020), many bands would have been forgiven for resting on their laurels and wallowing in the adulation.
But not UK brutal death mentalists, Twitch Of The Death Nerve!
Swiftly returning to the studio, the band have slammed down four new maniacal tracks, picking up exactly where A Resting Place For The Wrathful left off. Which means what? It means more satisfyingly savage brutal death metal, that’s what!
It also means that TOTFDN (that’s Twitch of the Fuckin’ Death Nerve, in case you were wondering) aren’t exactly messing with a winning formula….especially when that winning formula involves pummelling your insignificant face into the ground with absurdly relentless, technically audacious, hideously aggressive death metal.
Giving you exactly what you want (and expect), there may be no surprises to be found on the EP but that’s fine by us; we know what Twitch of the Death Nerve have to offer…..and we fuckin’ love it!
Backing these 4 new tracks of aural violence is a recording of TOTFDN’s entire set at Xxxapada Na Tromba festival that took place in Lisbon, Portugal in January 2020, before the jaws of lockdown snapped shut.
Suitably combative and sounding great, this live document proves that Twitch of the Death Nerve are more than capable of replicating the extremity in a live environment. 7/10
Beset By False Prophets is due for release on March 12th, 2021 via Comatose Music.
