HOSTIA ~ Hostia (2018)



Hostia ~ Hostia

Drawing influences from the greater gods of death and grind, Hostia  invoke a scorched earth policy  with a rabid and savage smite on the senses. This album is a total blitzkrieg of unrelenting ferocity, an apex predator that snatches you up in its jaws and shakes you until you hang limp and broken.

Most grind bands have the DNA of Napalm Death gushing through its veins and Hostia is no different, but with this, the bands first release, there is absolutely no place to hide, no respite from the frenzied assault, its just a full on barrage without the sanctuary of a d-tune breakdown.


Hostia is a band which obviously revels at the thought of inflicting as much neurological damage as possible and considering this is the bands first release, goodness only knows what they're capable of, but the lacerations caused by this withering onslaught will still be raw and bloody by the time the second wave hits.

DEAD SISTERS ~ Dead Sisters (2018)



Dead Sisters ~ Dead Sisters

Anguished howls, muffled in the intolerable density and weight of the wall of sound that saturates this entire release. Endless waves of humongous doom drone leaves you cowering, mouth agape at the enormity of it all, emotions drained, comatose and cowed by the ceremonial bludgeoning from the three colossal tracks available.



Albums of this type usually have a fair amount of ambient passages throughout which helps to give some respite to the senses, but, apart from five minutes or so on the track 'Sermon'  Dead Sisters dredges up huge tranches of glorious lung collapsing droning doom that, when you think it can't get any heavier, suddenly drops even lower, casting heaving,endless dissonance that mourns the riff just passed, in its wake.

This won't be an easy album for many to get into, but to those martyrs of the unbearably heavy, this is the (un) holy covenant.
