Reaping Flesh hail from Milan, Italy, 2023 however may simply be from Tampa, United States, 1987. Citing Post-mortem, Bloodbath and Demise as their major influences, Reaping Flesh have dropped their first music within the type of debut EP Abyss of Existence. Clinging carefully (and deliberately) to their influences, Abyss of Existence is a complete rager that begins off with the mood-setting “Backyard of Grief” (no relation to On the Gates) earlier than leaping straight into the meat.
The fast-paced “Pit of Eternity” is a selected spotlight for me, however there are shades of dying metallic for each hesher right here. “Components of Life” recollects Morbid Angel and Obituary, whereas “Lies of Existence” hints at notes of Demise. “Self Incarnation” relishes in its sluggish grooves and “Worry With out Form” is a moody, doomy nearer that runs for six-and-a-half minutes.
“Abyss of Existence was born from our frequent ardour for early dying metallic, specifically Florida’s scene,” Reaping Flesh inform Decibel. “For that reason, we labored arduous on writing livid ‘straight-to-the-face’ riffing with no frills whereas listening to numerous Post-mortem, Morbid Angel and early Demise as our inspiration. We really feel we achieved what we had been going for in creating efficient, edgy and catchy songs. The lyrics had been written in a short while, benefiting from the inspiration given by the atmospheres of the songs and the perpetual questions on existence that run by way of our minds. The vocal traces preserve a direct expressiveness, as in the event that they had been born from the purest intuition, a direct passage from the unconscious to the acutely aware.”
