Killer French death metal duo Skelethal are back with their second EP in less than a year and what a difference just a few months make. While they floored us then with their crudity embezzling complex arrangements and sucker-punching riffs, now Interstellar Knowledge of the Purple Entity elaborates even further with a surprising combination of filthy riffage and guttural vocals and a sense of musicality that seems to have been lost in these times of retarded bestiality.
Interstellar Knowledge of the Purple Entity is intelligent by design and it contains five cuts, one of which is an intro and the last of which is a Carnage cover.
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
