I by Bufihimat occupies a similar space as acts like Pyrrhon and Gorguts: intensely technical, dense death metal that doesn’t exactly fit in with some of the genre’s heavyweights. A Russian trio, Bufihimat released I last year to little fanfare, though Willowtip Records clearly took notice. They signed the group and are releasing I to a larger audience.
