Being inspired by the classics doesn’t mean you can just follow through and pull off something worthy of your forebears. But someone in Portland has unbolted a crypt and unleashed the debut four-song EP Summon Horrendous Destruction by Petrification.
Listening to the doom-flavored death of “The Headless One” will practically make your torso sprout a leather jacket as the band eschews any polish or pretense in favor of messy, faithful, cataclysmic old-school death.
Check the song out below. It’s as raw and gruesome as a neck stump spurting gore.
Summon Horrendous Destruction will be out on cassette and digital on March 3rd on Sentient Ruin and you can preorder it right here.
