Hear Reverence to Paroxysm‘s “Portals to Dark Misery” in its entirety exclusively HERE.

Forming in 2020 and with a split and live album already under their belts, Mexico City’s Reverence to Paroxysm are now unveiling their debut album, Lux Morte. Taking a viciously old-school approach with disgusting riffs contorting upon pulverizing drums, this macabre descent into decay shall grip you from the very earliest moments. Gurgling vocals spew eldritch slime upon the meaty instrumentals, with thick bass-lines giving a chunky low end to the sound. Taking all of the most morbidly revolting elements of underground death metal, Reverence to Paroxysm bludgeon their way into your skull with fleshy hammer blows. The talents of frontman Antimo Buonnano, previously from death/grind legends Disgorge among many others, brings a veteran element to the band, injecting their abhorrent legacy into his latest involvements. The slower moments will drag you through the sepulchral dirt while more upbeat assaults thrash the meat from the bone like a bladed whip of sonic poison. The gloomy dynamics, visceral hooks, and brutal execution will mercilessly execute all in their path, and you would be a fool not to submit to Reverence to Paroxysm

Eerie soundscapes entwine with putrescent primitive pounding, giving a rancid and yet atmospheric listen. The more you delve into this record, the more subtle nuances you will find scattered throughout, which add texture and detail while falling into the monstrously cataclysmic feel of the entire piece very naturally. Although an odiously primal energy is draped across this entire record, there are some very cleverly placed and unusual riffs that give a very unique and interesting feel to things as they cut through thundering bass or the razor-sharp cymbal work. The sparse vocals perfectly play off of the instrumental parts to give the band this dense, foggy, and oppressive sound. If you are of the school of death metal lover who needs subterranean riffing, crackling bass, bone-splintering drums, and disgusting -but-varied vocals, then waste no time in checking out Lux Morte. So proceed with caution and succumb to the fetid, decaying world that is presented and be soaked in the rotten tapestry Reverence to Paroxysm have woven for you and prepare to be crushed by it.
