When the intro fades out and the first notes of “Blood Splatter Eclipse” kick in, it becomes immediately apparent that Scorched are here to kick your ass with their highly-anticipated second LP, Ecliptic Butchery. The east coast old-school death metal crew exhibit the highest degree of savagery of their career so far; primitive riffs, dive bombs, tremolo riffs and cavernous vocals mix together across the nine tracks.
“Extremely excited to finally share this with everyone,” vocalist Matt Kapa says. “We had a vision when we started this band and we have built upon that with each release. Finally, with our newest addition of Federico Dimarco on guitar, we were able to create exactly what we have been aiming for. With Eclipitic Butchery, the demented murderer we have always written from the perspective of discovers through flashbacks and night terrors that he has been given the duty to report back to creatures from beyond who have abducted him and returned him to earth after torturing and experimenting on humans.”
Ecliptic Butchery stands as one of the year’s finest death metal albums, but don’t take our word for it. Dig into the full album below and hit 20 Buck Spin’s store to get your copy. Don’t slip on the blood!
