HORRENDOUS "Ecdysis" CD (Dark Descent Records 2014)
Horrendous burst out of the gates in January 2012 and took the metal world by storm with their debut full-length, The Chills (Decibel Magazine top 40 of 2012). Their sophomore release, Ecdysis, sees the band expand upon their sound while upping the song writing and musicianship. Ten songs, 42 minutes.
“Born in the fires of classic death metal—we’re specifically thinking Dismember’s Like an Ever Flowing Stream—but energized with youthful enthusiasm, Horrendous take the New Wave of Old-School Death Metal back from pretenders and never-weres.” – Decibel Magazine
“Dynamic, yet still heavy music with some melodic objections. At some points dark, at others chaotic and wild. Ecdysis really amazes me.” – Metal Storm
“Ecdysis may be a tough egg to crack for those of you more suited to pop structured death metal, but this album unveils so much musical and metal maturity, it’s damn near impossible not to be impressed and even a bit blown away by the high brow hammering awaiting you. Great production. Crushing vocals. Headbanging death riffs that harken back to DM’s formative and meaningful years. Fuck yes.” – Worm Gear Zine
