Bludgeoning DEPRAVITY animated video premiered on Slam Worldwide

Australian death metal heavyweights Depravity are clearly leaving no stone unturned as they march toward the release of their much awaited ‘Grand Malevolence’ full-length, and proof of this is the insane thematic, musical and lyrical value the band packs into it. Slam Worldwide did a premiere of the animated video for the band’s Cantankerous Butcher track from the upcoming album on their YouTube Channel, and you just know it: the band holds back absolutely nothing right from the go; if death metal set to a violent dystopian scenescape is your jam, you’re gonna cream yourself to this one! The track, which you can  check out AT THIS LINK is a definite recommend, and we wouldn’t be overstating it when we say it’s among “the best death metal of this diseased year”.

After releasing a groundbreaking album in ‘Evil Upheaval’, Australian death metal giants Depravity take things to the next level on their new album ‘Grand Malevolence’ which is one of the most devastating albums of this year. It’s technically evolved, with masterful songwriting meeting skull-smashing brutality, executed with blinding speed and power. Each song is a testament to the best expression this style holds, showcasing facets of the sub-genres without allowing it to dilute the overall intensity and momentum. There’s technical death, brutal death, even progressive parts designed around the same dark and pummelling death metal Depravity are known for. It’s a clear tour de force and it might take multiple listens for that realization to sink in, because the album is so meticulous and intense that it might be too much to grasp at one go. Depravity have created a masterpiece and set high standards with it not only for themselves but for the genre as a whole, eschewing concepts of stylistic differences, trends and schools, and imbibing it all to create the most lethal expression possible. Prepare to get blown away.
