Album Review: Scaphism – Unutterable Horrors (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

Five years after their debut, Festering Human Remains, Boston’s Scaphism will release their highly-anticipated new album Unutterable Horrors on the 12th of January 2018 via Horror Pain Gore Death Productions.

Scaphism 1

A smash-mouth record filled with death metal riffs, intensely raging vocals & enough hooks to tear through the flesh. Unutterable Horrors is a pungent release that is all about providing face-melting heaviness with a nice touch of rhythm.

There’s just a touch of metalcore & thrash to the venomous speed that keeps the likes of Malapropos Cardiectomy & Mitte Eos Ad Infernos ticking along nicely. The likes of Vaults of Pestilence’s screeching guitar & bludgeoning vocals ensure the stylish death sound remains at the forefront.

Coming in at 28 minutes, Unutterable Horrors is a short album but considering how ‘in your face’ the record is, it ends up being just the right length. Boredom never sets in as the rolling drum beat of The Feaster from The Stars attempts to detach your brain from your skull & Excoriated and Excarnated tries to flay your flesh from your bones.

An unrelenting effort comes to a close with a bang as Hypovolemic Purification gives breaking bones one last commendable effort. A fast-paced, up-tempo record that doesn’t disappoint if you’re looking for a pissed off & nasty lump of metal.
