Catalonian Death Metal brutes Sanctuarium have already give us a superb demo, split and more recently a crushing debut album. Now they return with a sophomore slice of savagery for you to sink your rotting teeth into…

Gut-busting bass lines and skeletally fragmenting drums hit with all of the bludgeoning morbid force you can imagine. Combining this with ossuary-opening guitar and zombified vocals and you have the utterly disgusting template for Sanctuarium’s signature soundscape. Doom-laden, creeping and crawling Death Metal with the most fetidly raw feeling to it that is as oppressive as it is aggressive with such a stifling atmosphere like the air escaping from a broken tomb. In a world where so many things feel polished and frankly insincere, sometimes the underground spews up a band to right these wrongs and take Death Metal back to being unforgiving, dark and revolting like it used to be.

If you feel a sense of ecstasy from hearing putrid guitars melt into cavernous drums and inhuman vocals roaring into the abyss, then this album is exactly the hit you need to be transported into the crypt for one truly engrossing experience of grotesqueries. “Melted and Decomposed” feels timeless and yet harnesses all of the old school spirit triumphantly, delivering you the exact feelings that the title promises. With the artwork as a superb indicator, this is a twisted and contorted amalgamation of Death Metal with a unique execution that disfigures any sense of being into a putrescent onslaught of molten rot. If you have sought out some dragging, gruelling and revolting extremity, then you are in the right place. Otherwise, stick around and you will be pleasantly surprised by just how much crushing your skull can take from these Spanish maniacs
