From Turkey we got a full-length debut to review this time! It’s Persecutory, a band which stated out in 2014 and had an EP released last year Perversion Feeds Our Force. I’m not familiar with the band nor it’s sound but from the logo alone I could tell this was going to have black metal elements to it. Being from one of my current underground label favorites Godz ov War Productions I got high hopes on this release being something special.
Do you like Enthroned? What about Acrimonious? Then you’re in luck as Turkish band Persecutory offers an experience quite similar to their work. If you like your black metal with a lot of chaos and destruction in it then Towards the Ultimate Extinction will get your fill. This is very fast paced black metal with some trash metal thrown into the mix and it sounds evil. With that said there is little that makes me stick around for more than a playthrough or two. While some albums grow with time or are instant hits from the get-go I feelt this kinda just went by. Doesn’t by all means mean it’s a bad album it’s just not got those hooks that keeps me wanting to come back for more. No song that sticks out but also no song that I feel the need to skip.
For Enthroned fans I would say this is a really good album to get. It’s an album you can devour and get some satiscation from it but won’t leave you begging for more.
