CD NEW AND SEALED (with Plastic bag , not sealed ath the origin)

Welcome the first album by the Finnish death metal band. It took them almost 4 years to accomplish their main goal set after the debut release – to record a full-length album. The CD includes eight new songs about death, war, apocalypse and hate. The material is faster and heavier than the previous worksof the band, yet it is the same fine mixtureof old school death metal and modern music. The band plays sledge-hammer death metal in the vein of GRAVE, BLOODBATH and VOMITORY significantly influenced by US death metal a-la SIX FEET UNDER and early CANNIBAL CORPSE! The main points of the band are thick and tough wall of sound based on exorbitantly low-tuned stringed instruments, rich ventral growling and unexpectedly melodic guitar lines flashing through the incessant rattle and groove. Impressive and detailed artwork by maestro Askold of Godlike Icons specially painted for this CD perfectly matches the music.

Feast of Maggots

  1. From Tuonela Mag: You don’t have spend much time pondering about what kind of music Spiritual Holocaust is playing when taking a look at the album cover. The album cover reminds of 90s death metal acts like for instance Morbid Angel or Bolt Thrower and that indeed is kind of Spiritual Holocaust‘s thing: oldschool death metal. Listening to this album makes me a bit nostalgic.

    “Raped By Religions” is the first song and you already kind of get the picture of what the rest of the album is going to be like, there seems to be a symbiosis between the heaviness and melodies. In general in this album, one wouldn’t work without the other. Following that same model, the title track “Feast of Maggots”, offers us heavy riffs which are melodic at the same time. I could imagine myself being at an underground venue, listening to this song while people surrounding me would start a circle pit. Pretty standard though. The tempo drops in “Beneath The Bodies”, but the energy in the album really picks up during “Misanthropic Ways”, where drummer Ville Yypänaho blasts the hell out of his drum kit. This is a nice change after some of the more generic, perhaps traditional death metal songs in the first half of the album. When the first half of the album pretty much is standard death metal, the second half really offers you a true perspective of what the band has to offer us.

    The album in my opinion has three highlights, first one begin the title track “Feast of Maggots”, second one being “Misanthropic Ways”, third one being “I Will Die In Here”. The song is probably the most melodic one on the album, but the most refreshing one, with great tempo changes, captivating chord progressions and on top of that at sometimes a doom-feel to it.
    Because of the oldschool feel to the album, I would definitely describe “Feast of Maggots” as being authentic. The production achieves the right balance to prove that even more. The sound is dirty enough to still the darkness and aggression, but it’s clear enough to allow the melody and the songwriting to shine through. Of course the production of this album is not perfect yet and still can have some improvements, but in a way, especially when considering the style of these songs, it totally works well.

    With crushing its guitars, aggressive vocals and blasting drums, this album is definitely worth a spin if you like that oldschool death metal sound and in general like death metal acts like Bolt Thrower, Morbid Angel or Autopsy.

  2. First album from Spiritual Holocaust is an old school death metal from Finland. A bit throwback to distant and glorious times of Scandinavian sound. This record was recorded in many places in Finland from 2014 until 2017, so not in Sunlight studio…. However, the band takes a course to this type of sound that just has more careless and dirty production to it. I am a big fan of Swedish sounding albums which reminds me of how good death metal music is with such studio production. Following the fact, the band like Spiritual Holocaust has a bigger chance to success in my personal ranking of good bands. I have to warn you however that Feast of Maggots does not sound as good as Entombed or Carnage for sure. Their death metal songs have pure death metal vibe that I certainly like and never get tired of, but production wise, they are not that close to Left Hand Path or Like An Everflowing Stream releases. Musically – on the other hand, the band is much more like them. Feast Of Maggots has heavy and massively death metal riffs that reminds me of Dismember pretty much. The guitar rhythmic and shreds that go along are pushing them on, a bit further, from being too much one-dimensional, in terms of music direction. To my convenience, they try every track not being composed the same way, which is fine diversity to their very traditional, old school death metal approach. There are few moments where they put some melodies in songs but the album has a darker edge to music and lyrics overall. They play faster few times, even with blast beats but those tempos are reduced to necessary minimum which is good, because it is not this type of band that would play very fast in long distance and do it better than other bands already do. Playing slow and/or in medium pace is much more their thing to do, which sounds heavier, and I prefer it much more. The vocals frequencies are growl leveled and performed in very traditional way, same as music itself. Actually it is what I would expect from them and good death metal band as they are. They reached out solid vocal depths and brutality which they give it to you throughout the album, without any soft spots. Foremost, it is really fucking brutal piece of obscure death metal that Spiritual Holocaust emphasizes by music in this album. They try to find its own, natural music flow, but without even attempting to sound and play very original. I like this way of thinking – do what you do best and if you are honest to yourself, people shall appreciate it. If not, they can always fuck off. I am cruelly happy to recommend another good death metal album for you, which for me is Feast of Maggots by the band Spiritual Holocaust from Finland.
