SVART RECORDS 2013
Keep it short, or else the review will take longer than to listen to this EP.
Convulse returns with two evil signs after more than 18 years of obscurity.
For all of you unknown with this entity, go to Relapse dot com and get yourself a copy of death metal history, also known as "World Without God" and come back after ordering and listening.
For all of you, that are well known with the band and Finish death metal in general, do your self a favor and get these first 2 steps of Convulse in the new millennium. "God is Delusion" starts off acoustic to transform afterwards in a deathly and intense monster. Evil, doom, epic and atmospheric are the best words to describe this song.
The title track opens with the struck of a bell, Paradise Lost's debut comes in mind; for the youngsters think of Sonne Adam, sound (rough and unpure Finnish alike death metal!), riffs (compelling structures) and atmosphere are transforming your outside towards your inner evil.
Of course the old spirit can't be reproduced completely after almost 20 years and the time has also left some modern and more mature traces; but all in all a very good first effort of Convulse and hopefully a full length soon to complete the return.
Finish death metal remains outstanding!
