Have to start with saying Hellish God is such a good name for the band. Because this is fast paced heavy death metal in the veins of Krisiun, Malevolent Creation and Deicide. Which you know is good stuff. The intro builds up with some nice piano which then unleash the Hellish God on Qlipoth. The album never really stops either. It offers 30 minutes of pure death metal of the more brutal kind. There are definitely a few songs I like more than others though. With The Hindering Ones and Tagimron is Summoned being the two tracks that’s been played the most after the first listen. The Evil Emanations is a solid debut full-length from Hellish God which is a great follow-up to their EP Impure Spiritual Forces.
Having members from Antropofagus, Imposer and Mindful of Pripyat have surely helped this band as you can tell it’s experienced musicians at work. This also marks the first time I listen to a concept album focused on Qlipoth, metaphorical shells which represent evil spiritual forces in the Jewish mysticism. Now that’s evil.
