KARNARIUM “Otapamo Pralaja” LP

KARNARIUM (SWE) “Otapamo Pralaja” LP (Nuclear Winter Records) 13€

It is absolutely thrilling to watch the evolution of death metal these days. Swedes Karnarium with their new album just made death metal sonically more challenging and rich…

While the term “progressive” usually means “plastic” and “onanistic” when associated with death metal, in the case of bands like Karnarium or The Chasm, it designates a spiralling vortex projecting to uncharted territory.

The sound is analog and organic. The musicianship and songwriting are as challenging as it is needed in order to stimulate the imagination and mentally kidnap the listener from its sad, mundane preoccupations. Despite the relative complexity of the songs, an admirable flow is maintained which sort of distorts time. Indeed, at the end of the album you have the impression that you’ve listened to a couple of hours of good music, not just the 40 minutes that a 12″ LP can hold. This is a fucking masterpiece!
