The latest in a series of splits from Maryland slaughterhouse Rotted Life, Communion of Corrupted Minds brings together emerging Cleveland scorchers Noxis and the latest cosmic miscarriage to crash-land in Philly, a quartet known as Cavern Womb. Three songs from each crew, Communion… is one of the season’s nastiest double features.
Noxis may have already proven themselves with last year’s Expanse of Hellish Black Mire EP, but there’s no preparing for the solar assault of their laser-sharp ultra skills demonstrated on the first half of Communion of Corrupted Minds. Noxis are the terminators to Cavern Womb’s tentacular alien-brain death metal upon this cosmic battlefield. While the Cleveland trio annihilate absolutely with precision and cleanliness, Cavern Womb strike horror in the listener’s heart through ominous leads, chthonic atmospheres and unpredictable brutality.
According to SB, guitarist/vocalist of Cavern Womb, “After almost a year and a half of stewing in the inner machinations of the Cavern Womb, we’re super excited to finally have this out in collaboration with Noxis and Rotted Life Records. Three tracks of ‘90s influenced murky death/doom with one foot firmly planted in Finland and the other on the East Coast, all while aiming towards the cosmos. Sic Itur Ad Astra.”
Communion of Corrupted Minds comes out December 3rd on CD, pro-tape and digital from Rotted Life, LP out next year.
