Initial Impressions: Perversor: Demon Metal

Perversor is a Chilean blackened death/thrash metal band whose sound is rooted firmly in 1980's South American metal. Think Sarcofago, Bestial Devastation-era Sepultura, and Vulcano for reference points. So, yeah, this is some pretty nasty and bestial stuff here. The production values are pretty low, so you have to listen closely to hear just what in the hell is going on musically. This is pretty common for the styles that Perversor is influenced by though so it is not much of a surprise.

This is an EP so it is short and not-so-sweet. Perversor do a pretty good job of catching the same energy and hostility of their influences and package it together in something that does not quite sound like a tribute, but rather has its own voice. This is not retro in the least.

This is absolutely raw and bestial metal. It is not for the weak of heart. I am anxious to hear more from this band.
