3rd album by this finnish band that plays a crushingly heavy type of Death Metal with Doom hints and a dark, cryptic & eerie atmosphere inspired by bands like ABHORRENCE (fin), BOLT THROWER, ASPHYX, DERKETA, RIPPIKOULU, GRAVE, INCANTATION, ROTTREVORE... and in general getting inspiration from 90's Death Metal.

DESECRESY is a two men band formed in 2009 in Finland and they play Old School Death Metal. Fans of BOLT THOWER, INCANTATION, GRAVE , IMMOLATION and ABHORRENCE will be very happy with what they have to offer here, that is, pure Death Metal heavy as it can be. A slow Death machine on the move.

This fantastic duo have released previously, two other albums; "Arches Of Enthropy " 2010 and "The Doom Spectron" 2012, and "Chasmic Transcendence" is more like a mutation of both released albums and a touch of BOLT THOWER and ABHORRENCE added to it. The result is brutal war machine out of control destroying everything on its way.

"Ethereal Bane" opens the curtain, Jarno vocals is dirty, heavy and it has this evil melody that tears you up from the inside. "Shattered Monuments" is next and follows the same path, instrumentally is very catching, distorted and quite technical with lots of variations. Despite the slow approach, DESECRESY have chosen to stick with, they have not lost their brutality. Most songs are less than four minutes each so I would say one would not get bored at all. As I said before, fans of BOLT THROWER will love this album. Tt is original, brutal on its own way and heavy as fuck, I listened to it few times and I want to listen more and more. Tommy does an amazing job playing all the instruments with such perfection "Voracious Mass" double kicks all over. That unique sounding going deep into your ears and tearing up and leaving behind those echoes of destruction and lost in the "Infinite Halls" and meeting the "Travellers Of The Forbidden Planes" survive this onslaught if you dare.

"Chasmic Transcendence" is an album that I think will make a big impact in the Death Metal scene. Jarno and Tommy have joined forces and brought their knowledge to the table and the result is what you see in here. A heavy, dark and gloomy masterpiece of Death and crushing bones. Who ever said that Death Metal has to be fast to be good and prevail will have to change their view entirely because DESECRESY will destroy you slowly.

As production goes. I can't fault anything at all, artwork cover the same, excellent, the only thing is, I would love to see them crushing bones live, hope they work out something and all the best.

Es este el tercer álbum de los finlandeses Desecrecy, una banda que no es un proyecto paralelo de sus dos únicos músicos pero si casi un one man band donde si bien Tommi Grönqvist se atreve con todos los instrumentos, no consideró que podría hacerse cargo de las voces y para ello se ha unido con Jarno Nurmi, un vocalista de timbre grave.

Como ocurre casi siempre con un proyecto donde trabajan solamente uno o dos músicos, aquí la música es morbosa, podrida, cargada de atmosferas oscuras y con cierto aire de locura, y al mismo tiempo cada composición tiene pocas notas, ritmos hipnóticos y repetición de riffs.

Los timbres, la voz y las estructuras son las del death metal. Tanto el sonido crudo como la composición en muchos momentos minimalista, lleva a recordar aquel black metal noruego primitivo, aunque aquí se acercan más al death.

La banda está influenciada claramente por el death de los primeros años 90 y por bandas como sus compatriotas Abhorrence, Bolt Thrower, Grave, Incantation, Immolation, etc, aunque en el sonido final hay poco de algunas de estas bandas como los Bolt Thrower o Immolation.

Canciones como “Son of the Burning Gods” suenan exquisitas y representan todo lo que la banda intenta desarrollar en su música. La voz gutural mantiene un tono bajo además, nada de alaridos, sino una línea vocal amenazante, rodeada por momentos de guitarra letárgicos, mientras una segunda guitarra descarga riffs que se acercan al stoner y una batería sencilla, donde predomina el sonido de os tambores mientras el de los platillos queda bastante enterrado en la grabación, da soporte a la música.

Junto a ella, el resto de las canciones, sin grandes desniveles, sigue el mismo camino de putrefacción y desolación, (escúchalo de noche y con la luz apagada para que tus oídos se agucen y sentirás bien lo que digo) con escaso espacio entre tema y otro que a veces te sorprenden con sus finales abruptos y el posterior inicio de una nueva melodía.

Desecrecy zählen ohne Frage zu den finnischen Exportschlagern, zumindest was die aktuelle Death Metal Szene angeht.
Und wenn man sich deren aktuelle Granate reinzieht, dann bleibt einem fast die Spucke weg.

Mächtiger Death Metal bester Machart kommt einem da entgegengepoltert und bereits mit dem starken “The Ethereal Bane” zieht man sämtliche Register seines Könnens und zeigt auf, was es heißt, Melodie und Aggression gekonnt miteinander verschmelzen zu lassen. Diese Art der Umsetzung wird mit Bravour auf dem gesamten Silberling umgesetzt.
Feine Melodiebögen verzieren die vielfältigen Gitarrensoli und werden mitunter von fett sägenden Groovewänden verschlungen, welche ebenso den Hörer übermannen.

“Chasmic Transcendence” klingt einerseits verdammt morbide, andererseits aber auch vorbildlich frisch und unverbraucht.
Schon der Erstkontakt hinterlässt seine Spuren und feinste Ohrwürmer kristallisieren sich heraus.
Explizit darauf einzugehen, ist kaum möglich, ist vorliegende Scheibe doch ausnahmslos mit Brechern bestückt.
Das Resultat ist wohlige Gänsehaut und fast schon als typisch zu benennende Trademarks blitzen durch.

Gerade die Erstwerke von Amorphis (das waren Zeiten!) und Abhorrence kommen einen in den Sinn, wobei diese Burschen hier aber dennoch mit Wiedererkennungswert glänzen – wunderbare Gitarrenarbeit und tiefes Growling harmonieren perfekt miteinander und was sich mit den starken Vorwerken schon abzeichnete, wird nun Realität: Desecresy greifen mit “Chasmic Transcendence” nach der Death Metal Krone und überflügeln mit ihrem authentischen Sound viele Mitstreiter. Zwar wird hin und wieder auch die Keule geschwungen, von hirnlosem Gebolze ist aber weit und breit keine Spur. Man agiert eher im Midtempo, vor den rasiermesserscharfen Riffs ist man dennoch nicht sicher.

Mit ihrem Drittwerk auf Xtreem Music legen Desecresy ein grandioses Schlachtschiff auf, ein Pflichtkauf ist da vorprogrammiert und wer dies nicht tut, der gehört bestraft.

Finland’s death metal duo Desecresy returns this year with their third full length album, Chasmic Transcendence. With their last album, 2012′s The Doom Skeptron being one of my favourite Finnish death metal records of the year, I could hardly wait for more crushing onslaught by Desecresy, and Chasmic Transcendence is the answer to that craving.
If one wondered whether Desecresy could go even slower and heavier after what they presented on The Doom Skeptron, Chasmic Transcendence quickly proves naysayers wrong, and the band is relentless in their aural assault. The Ethereal Bane immediately hit the listener hard, and for whatever speed that they have discarded the band more than makes up for it in heaviness and intensity. Yet not everything goes at a doom pace, as Shattered Monuments comes in fast and rather unexpectedly with the mood and expectations already set up on The Ethereal Bane, yet it is this constant element of surprise throughout the album that makes Chasmic Transcendence an extremely enjoyable album.

Unlike the material on The Doom Skeptron as well, Desecresy takes a slightly different approach this time in their songwriting, with each of the tracks on Chasmic Transcendence often having a shorter length than the material on it’s predecessor, and this certainly works in favour of the band in delivering their dosage of death and destruction to the listener. The thought that the band has put in in creating an album experience is also obvious, and though tracks like The Denied Legacy may be short, they fit in the overall scheme of the album. Autumn of Souls even ends rather softly compared to the chaos that the band presented prior, closing the album on a haunting node, at the same time re-emphasising the focus on the atmosphere on Chasmic Transcendence.

With each of the members coming from the now-defunct Slugathor, the doom influences that they have brought with them are obvious in the songwriting, and apart from the influences from legends such as Incantation, the influences from their compatriots such as Demigod are also easily discernible. The heaviness throughout the album that results also brings to mind bands such as Undergang and Cruciamentum, resulting in a merciless, suffocating atmosphere that lasts the entirety of Chasmic Transcendence.

However, fans of Desecresy‘s previous material, as well as Slugathor need not fret nor worry about Chasmic Transcendence being a less-than-satisfactory album. Despite the slower and gloomier outlook that is on Chasmic Transcendence, the band still ensures that their roots are still present, and fans of the material that they presented on The Doom Skeptron and on Slugathor releases will not be disappointed.

Im Jahre 2009 fanden sich zwei finnische Freaks zusammen, um das zu machen, was man aus Finland kennt. Eigenständigen, etwas anderen Death Metal. Tommi Grönquist und Jarno Nurmi setzen quais da an, wi Bands wie z.B. Abhorrence aufgehört haben. Die Finnen haben schon etwas eigenständiges, etwas dunkles und atmosphärisches in ihrem Death Metal. Sie konnten Dave Rotten von Xtrem Music überzeugen und so kommt nun das dritte Album bereits auf dem Markt. Etwas schwermutiges, etwas monochomatisches liegt in der Luft. Ebenso wie bei Disgrace oder Derketa überwiegt die Atmosphäre im Death Metal. Wer diese Bands abfeiert, der wird auch DESECRESY mögen, denn sie können nicht nur schleppend, sondern bollern auch ordentlich drauf los, so wie sie bei “Shattred Monuments” beweisen. DESECRESY zelebrieren eine eigene Mischung aus finnischen old school Death Metal mit Zutaten von Bolt Thrower, Immolation, Incantation und Grave. Die Gitarrenlinien erinnern an guten Tagen der alten Amorphis ( noch zur “The karelian Isthmus” Zeiten) und machen Lust auf Depressivität. Der Wechsel zwischen schweren modrigen und schnellen Passagen macht eine ordentliche Mahlzeit aus den Zutaten. Hinzu kommt noch das perverse Geröchel, herrlich. Diesen Stil muss man mögen. Ich finde ihn erfrischend anders. Das Album ist durchdacht, aber kalt und böse. Was will man von einem Death Metal Album mehr. Richtig gutes Brett!
