Published Oct 31, 2017Extreme nihilists will feel that Tetragrammacide is the band our world deserves. Having stirred in the underground fringes for years, the three-piece finally produced a debut full-length, Primal Incinerators of Moral Matrix an album of sonic savagery that heralds the end times in a pure onslaught of noise and unrelenting hatred.
Tetragrammacide seek to horrify and dominate the listener under the weight of their seething hatred, which drives each song on the album — and the fact that the album is nearly perfect will be enough to make some listeners hate it. To define the high and low points of Primal Incinerators is nearly as difficult as making it through the album's runtime in one piece, as the band balance the conventions of extreme black death metal without becoming stale or repetitive, injecting sections and flourishes into songs that make them stand out, all the while being sandblasted with an aura of acidic noise that permeates everything.
Songs like, "Cyberserking Strategic Kalpa - Terminator (Advanced Acausality Increment Mechanism)" and "Meontological Marga of Misanthropic Computation & Extensive Backwards Physics" in particular stand out, at times feeling as though on the brink of going out of control, like the outer chaos of space encapsulated in a high pressure container.
With Primal Incinerators of Moral Matrix, Tetragrammacide have forged a true titan founded on the bestial sounds of bands like Revenge with the cosmic grotesquery of Portal. Yet, it's also its own beast, a terror to behold that seeks to crush all that man holds sacred. Bow, and embrace Kaliyuga! (Iron Bonehead)
