It’s taken the Americans in Cranial Engorgement ten years (they formed in 2007) to release their full-length debut, that’s a long ass wait! One reason for this is the band, which consists of three members, has changed two of three members during this time and seems to have had a hard time getting it to find the motivation when losing the members (just speculating) to keep on going and actually release a full-length. Up until now that is!
Horrific Existence starts with an sample and instrumental track on Prelude to Horror, which is heavy and groovy that will kickstart your experience. On Dawn of The Final Day the mayhem truly starts! Blasting out like Dying Fetus on the good old days with tempo changes, brutal death metal groove and gutterals that will keep you going for days. After that is just keeps on going at full speed, Cranial Engorgement doesn’t know how to slow down but they don’t have to because this is fucking brutal death metal!
They say those that wait for something good can wait for a long time and Carnial Engorgement’s full-length debut Horrific Existence is the perfect example of that. It’s what the American brutal death metal scene is about and fans of Gorgasm, Dying Fetus, Cannibal Corpse, Deeds of Flesh or Nile (for that technical spin) will be right at home with this album.
