The Disfigurement of Existence
Company: Unique Leader
Release: 2017
Genre: Heavy/Extreme
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 12/1/2017

Heavy, evil and no nonsense
COMMENTS:
Signs of the Swarm offer up some seriously punishing extreme metal on 'The Disfigurement of Existence'. The sheer heaviness of the album is nothing short of jaw dropping with some seriously heavy riffing, monstrous drums and some incredibly catchy moments. The vocals are menacing and demonic in their timbre and exude a sense of evil. The constant battery of heaviness is an all out assault on the senses and one you have to prepare yourself for as the album begins. If you like your metal heavy, evil and no nonsense, then Signs of the Swarm is exactly what you want.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Voices of Ruin, Dying Fetus, Cryptopsy
