Blood Harvest Records sets August 6th as the international release date for a new EP from Perilaxe Occlusion, Raytraces of Death, on 12” vinyl format.
A duo hailing from Toronto, Perilaxe Occlusion are utterly world-eating given their seemingly sparse membership. Just recently did the band make waves with Blood Harvest‘s re-release of their Exponential Decay debut EP, and now with Raytraces of Death do the duo provide another swift ‘n’ assertive display of those world-eating ways.
Death metal for death metal maniacs by death metal maniacs, Exponential Decay combined gooey, viscous riffing with slamming propulsion, vaguely sci-fi atmosphere with black emanations from beyond, straddling a unique line between the knuckle-dragging and the cerebral. And while the ever-appropriately titled Raytraces of Death follows a similar trajectory, Perilaxe Occlusion here unveil a startling grasp of dynamics – haunting in its tension, effortless in its usage – which adds another dark level of devastation to their already-considerable arsenal. And just like its short-length predecessor, Raytraces of Death is likewise 22 minutes, but spread across three epic tracks. BENT death metal par excellence has gotten even better!
