CALIGARI RECORDS is proud to present DEVOID OF THOUGHT's second demo, Cosmic Apoptosis, on cassette tape format. Hailing from Italy, DEVOID OF THOUGHT made their recorded debut in 2017 with Astral Necrosis, which was released on cassette by CALIGARI. A rough 'n' righteously promising start, that debut demo has been eclipsed by Cosmic Apoptosis. Once again aptly titled, Cosmic Apoptosis aims for even more daring and angular reaches of the death metal spectrum: progressive and experimental without any of the negative connotations those words generally evoke when used in the context of "death metal," and above all, emphasis duly placed on GUTWRENCHING darkness. With but a mere three songs, DEVOID OF THOUGHT here craft a dizzying, dread-inducing experience...and there's more insanity still to come!

Chambers comes on and in the first couple of minutes, I had to stop dead in my living room and sit my ass down. The drum sound was THAT immediate. Encoffinized drops the hammer and gets the hell outta town for an LP. While there may not be tons of trailblazing about this release, but I have to put plant a flag in the ground here and say that this kind of "sound" takes vision, personality, and dedication.

A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
