Originally self-released digitally in July 2019 and then pressed on 12" vinyl by Steel & Bone Productions, Ritual Mass' Abhorred in the Eyes of God is a gutsfucking slab of primal, pustulent DEATH FUCKING METAL. No tech, no progression, no normal blastbeats, no real "solos," no progression, no goofy merch - just utter devastation, tonal rape, crushing filth, ignorant stomp, and overwhelming intensity. It's death metal, but done with a dangerous zeal that's blanching to behold. Likewise, no particular scene or substyle or "microgenre" is fetishized like so many record-collector-nerd bands; one can detect old Chicago death metal here as easily as equally old UK crust, '90s Finnish gore as 2000s Japanese doom-death. In other words, this Pittsburgh power-trio locate the reptilian part of their brains and unselfconsciously create the kind of death metal they want to hear, and the grand afterbirth vomited forth is this 13-minute EP appropriately titled Abhorred in the Eyes of God. Caligari couldn't be more pleased to unleash this foulness on tape for the first time.
