Review

From the mountainous wastes of Kingsport, Tennessee comes Purulency, a very recent death metal band who sent me their advance demo a little while ago. For an American band, these boys clearly love the old Finnish death metal scene from the '90s, as their music on Transcendent Unveiling of Dimensions reminds me a good bit of the first demos from legendary acts like Demigod, Demilich, and Abhorrence. You get more vile and crushing numbers like opener "(Inside the) Arcane Hypogeum" and "Adrift in Festering Perpetuity" along with some more daring cuts like the complex "Xenolith of Ruination" and the eerie midsection of "Devoured by Sentient Nihility," the latter of which genuinely sends a chill down my spine every time I hear it. You probably noticed I just named every track, but this is the kind of release where you kind of have to due to how short it is and how every track is a killer homage to the gory days of Finnish death metal. Just look at the killer album art and you'll know what you're getting here, no more, no less, and if you're like me, that means you're already looking forward to a full-length from these lads.
