† And then the Curse swept the Earth

"Ecce Homo: Post Lux Tenebras, Pulsio XIII Ultima Ratio" is the first full length, they passed the Demo and EP phase, of the chilean demons Godless. This is quite an original record. And sincerely, in my modest opinion, it was one of the best death metal albums released last year, yet this album passed under the radar of many... 

This album is a dark trip, to describe Godless is not easy, but think of an unholy accumulation of the aesthetics that formed Morbid Angel, Gorguts, Incantation, and Obituary. Churning, filthy grooves wrap their tentacles around the listener like the needy appendages of an elder God, while the band swarms through a dynamic range of hostile intentions that fabricate emotions from death/doom to death/grind at their polar extremities, with the true strength lying somewhere in between.

The full 46 minute dosage that lasts "Ecce Homo.." is one fucking destructive ritual that truly captures the current wave of retro, morbid old school death entangled with modern death metal. I wouldn't label this record as "accessible", and it may take you a few complete sit-throughs to appreciate it in its fullness.
