Australian death metal experimenters, Impetuous Ritual, have announced their new album, Blight Upon Martyred Sentience. The new album will be their third and the followup to 2014’s Unholy Congregation of Hypocritical Ambivalence. One thing is for sure, they know how to title a death metal album. As for the “Inordinate Disdain”, it appears that Impetuous Ritual are still working in the weird, murky, dissonant death metal on display on their past records. The new track feels heavier on ambience. The guitars are mostly used to create layers of sound. Where most death metal aims to pummel you with bruising riffs, Impetuous Ritual wants to suffocate with atmosphere. Listen below.
Blight Upon Martyred Sentience is out 6/16 on Profound Lore Records.
