Dark, brutal, dirty, relentless, evil, and vile; this is truly a horrific album, made from the nightmares of sick and twisted minds. The cover exemplifies the music perfectly; ugly, twisted, and an affront to the senses.
Prosanctus Inferi is a American black/death metal band with grind aestethics. As usual with grind bands, the songs are fast and harsh, and a bit on the repetetive side. Compared to “traditional” grind bands, Prosanctus Inferi is much darker, with a more sinister feel to them, and the song are much more fleshed out and longer. As such, Pandemonic Ululations of Vesperic Palpitations is more cohesive.
Pandemonic Ululations of Vesperic Palpitations (what’s with the facination with long, medical terms with grind bands?), is a great album and definitely worth checking out. It features the artwork of the painter Francis Bacon, the piece is titled Head I. (1948) His artwork fits the tone of the music beautifully and his other works are equally distrubing.
