NEWS: DESECRATE THE FAITH Streaming New Track: "Sacrilege Reborn"
OFFICIAL: Texas Death Metal Outfit DESECRATE THE FAITH have released a new song from forthcoming album Unholy Infestation. "Sacrilege Reborn" is now streaming at the first link below. DESECRATE THE FAITH will release sophomore album Unholy Infestation March 3 on Comatose Music. Comatose Music has formed an unholy alliance with Texas born death metal monstrosity DESECRATE THE FAITH. Rising from the infernal flames of Houston in 2012, they soon released their successful debut Disfigured Arrangement in 2014, then followed up with American and European tours. Now DESECRATE THE FAITH has returned with their punishing sophomore full length Unholy Infestation. Complete with unrelenting blasphemies, bringing technical style riffs alongside merciless blast beats and putrid guttural vocals. With bestial tracks like "Malignant Divinity" and "Angel Eater," the band is unleashing a demonic entity that fans of all death metal can feast upon. Be on the lookout for this sacrilegious offering of godless brutality!
This is what Wonderbox Metal has said about the band:
"This is the second album from US death metallers Desecrate the Faith.
Desecrate the Faith play brutal death metal in the barbarous US style.
This is an unforgiving album that takes no prisoners and grants no mercies. If you’re into Suffocation, Defeated Sanity, Cannibal Corpse, Severe Torture, etc. then Desecrate the Faith should be right up your blood-soaked street.
Unholy Infestation has a strong production and the album sounds huge and muscular. Thick, heavy guitars provide plenty of meat to get your teeth into, while the drumming is particularly enjoyably played on top of this. Note should also be made of the bass guitar’s role in the songs, and I particularly enjoy the old-school Cannibal Corpse-esque bass breaks.
There are lots of tasty riffs to be heard throughout this album and the songs feature a decent amount of variety in speeds. Slow, mid-paced, fast and full-blast-ahead assault styles are all used and the band have a good sense of dynamics in their delivery.
The songs are comprehensive examples of brutal death metal that are played well with some nice technical moments added here and there amid the general carnage. The band certainly know how to play their instruments, when they’re not just smashing them into your face, of course.
The singer’s deep growls are extremely guttural and he sounds every bit the professional death-dealer. He’s a constant companion to the heavy death metal that thunders out of the speakers and his performance is first-rate throughout.
Unholy Infestation is a really quality blast of brutal death metal. With enough instant appeal, complexity, depth and variety to keep connoisseurs of the style content for many, many listens, Desecrate the Faith have done very well on their second album.
