Voids of Vomit
After two years, Voids of Vomit’s modern Death Metal masterpiece entitled “Veritas Vltima Vitae” is finally unleashed. Having clawed their way out of the catacombs of the Italian scene, Voids of Vomit play traditional Death Metal that touches the same nerves as classic bands from the early 1990’s. Voids of Vomit’s directive is clear: to convey the majestic omnipotence of death with the mute and morbid eloquence of the corpse. When Voids of Vomit recorded their first demo in 2006, the band easily situated itself in the top tier of bands within the modern Death Metal revival. Since then the Death Metal bandwagon has been filled to capacity with scores of bands ostensibly aiming for the same goal. However, where most of those bands fall far short of producing a genuinely noteworthy sound, Voids of Vomit succeed in summoning the most sickeningly macabre metal. While the band’s influences are readily apparent – Asphyx, Grave, Incantation, Miasma, etc. – the manner in which these influences merge within Voids of Vomit’s work is uniquely devastating. Voids of Vomit dig through cold earth to uncover the remains of mortal corpora long perished with the alcohol-sickened and hallucinatory mind of a decrepit digger of graves. Through dense, tumultuous song structures they conjure the odor, the imagery, the intense feel of pure morbidity. Voids of Vomit are notoriously reclusive and there is not likely to be another release by the band in the near future.
