BEGRIME EXEMIOUS – PRIMEVAL SATELLITE

It is doom and thrashy in the same time and eventually hits the black/death torment that partially describes the Canadians of Begrime Exemious. This is how their latest EP goes. Primeval Satellite was released this year’s late summer but it was recorded two years ago. And I must admit that the entire material reveals a feeling of something kept in a cave for a while. It has a kind of aggressiveness which seems that it might have been very well calculated, but I think it is all just natural because this is how old school death metal tends to sound like. Everything is slow and rough because there is no need to hurry while destroying something, you must enjoy it first.

Things have changed a bit since their first full length, Impending Funeral of Man in terms of intensity. Yet their composition is based on a few contradictory details, but I think that this is part of their sense. Otherwise, the rhythm’s balance and the guitar tones are way better than what we could here on Visions of the Scourge. That is why Begrime Exemious deals with a constant evolution. Now their rawness is high-pitched and the melodic character is concentrated in beautiful solos and I will mention here the first song from this EP, Entrails & Barbed Wire and the fifth one, Bloodworms. It seems that the most serious track is Silent Observer Older Than Earth concerning musicality, being nothing more than a gloomy doom piece transformed in an easy-going declaration of death and horror. The levels of Primeval Satellite are pretty divers and so, the next song, Wolf Hound Bitch revolves around a nice groove emphasized by simple blasts.

The vocals and many riffs remind me of the Necrophagia vibe, especially that one from Cannibal Holocaust. Anyways, there are many parts that can be familiar for anyone who is into extreme metal, but the blending makes the element of surprise. Comparing with the peers of the Canadian black-death realm, Begrime Exemious succeeds to be quite natural, having all this range of influences disclosed in an interesting manner, a fact which makes them so alive.

The song that marks the end of this material it is a cover for the Nuclear War of Nuclear Assault and I find this admirable. It is such a good song that you can never refuse to go and listen to it once again, being in the know that is the same old killer thing with a new sound.

In view of these facts, I’m looking forward for a new full length from Begrime Exemious because it seems that this time they got something which is less ambiguous and so it became powerful. Also, a more devastating sound would be a better feature for their musical attack.”
