Morbific – Ominous Seep of Putridity – Album Review

33 minutes of skull stomping death metal!

Old-school death metal is everywhere at the moment with bands such as Finnish death/doomers Morbific unleashing dense, dank and diabolically evil odes to their late 80s / early 90s forefathers like their very lives depended on it.

And we fucking love it! The more old-school death metal the better!!

As more than hinted at in the title, Ominous Seep of Putridity is as rank as they come; a cess-pool of filthy buzzsaw riffs, d-beat drumming and gargling with sewage-esque vocals. Blatantly harking back to the glory days of Autopsy, General Surgery and CianideMorbific wallow in mindless filth with the likes of “Cadaveric Maggot Farm” and “Sulfuric Funeral” leaving a smell behind that can only be described as gag-inducing. With a strong Swedish death metal vibe prevailing, it should come as no surprise to hear that Morbific also dwell in similar rat-infested domains as Dismember and Grave.

A lumpen, malformed shape of an album which deliberately deconstructs today’s obsession with technicality, these tracks simply grind and growl their way through a sea of classic 90’s death metal brutality. Here lies the most neanderthal, bare-boned death/doom riffs imaginable, plodding through endless eviscerated carcasses strewn across the infernal sea as Satan laughing, spreads his death/doom lovin’ wings! There’s speed when speed is required but, ultimately, this is a trudge through the sloppy innards of death metals illustrious past.  

Disgusting then, in all the right ways! 7/10

Ominous Seep Of Putridity was released on 1st May 2021. Go and grab a copy over at Bandcamp!
