DIABOLIC OATH - Profane Death Exodus
Craneo Negro :: CD (digipak) :: 12
The debut full-length by this Portland based band. "Profabe Death Exodus" is one of the most unnerving and annihilating displays of sonic tyranny to have been vomited out of the West Coast of U.S.A. in recent times. While the influences drawn from bands like Teitanblood, Immolation and Bestial Warlust help trace a profile, the album remains an enigmatic abhorrence quite hard to fully define or categorize, with its colossal yield of destruction shaped primarily through an unorthodox mastery of the fretless guitar and bass accompanied by a triple and often simultaneous vocal attack, an unusual and free-form approach to the Black/Death Metal craft which has resulted in an album of almost otherworldly destructive traits.
