Unseen Repulsions

Rated 4/5 (80%) (3 Votes)

San Antonio's beloved Death/Thrash hoard Aggravator are back with their latest EP, Unseen Repulsions, whose album cover is a pretty good representation of what we've been going through for the past year and a half (future readers may refer to the burned remains of the history book in their bunkers for details). It's also a perfect visual for the kind of music they make, which is still essentially if you filtered Death through the lenses of Slayer and Malevolent Creation, and they sure haven't lost a step making it with this release. The band is as tight and frenzied as ever, with most of the material being the kind of brutal, headbanging Death/Thrash feast they've dished out since the beginning, only they've refined it to a bloody razor's edge at this point. The one exception to this is the track "Bounty Hunter," which sounds like a Venom track ripped straight from Welcome to Hell or Black Metal, but it serves as a nice breather between the relentless brutality of the rest of the album, and it rocks hard enough to keep it from sounding too out of place. All in all, this is yet another killer release from a band that should be a minor household name in the underground at this point, and I eagerly await the day they decide to make another full-length.
