Blaspherian is a Death Metal band hailing from Texas who formed in 2004. They are very ingrained in the Death Metal community as being one of the newer leaders in the genre Death Metal. Their tone is a complete Death Metal tone with a very muddy, heavy sound. I can honestly say that there are not too many Death Metal bands bringing it like Blaspherian these days.
From the outset of the album, the opening track, The Disgrace Of God, hits you right in the face. Lord Apollyon’s vocals sound like they come straight from hell and are so guttural and solid. Lord Apollyon is easily the highlight of this band, but that is not to say that the rest of the band are slouches in any way. They are very solid musically.
Another track that I am really getting into is Sworn to Death and Evil. It is slow and heavy. While their sound may not be completely unique or revolutionary, it still has enough power behind it that will want you to keep listening. I wish that they were not so straight forward Death Metal, but if you want a solid Death Metal band, then look no further.
While there will always be comparisons with Cannibal Corpse, I find Blaspherian to be unique enough to where these comparisons are unwarranted. Infernal Warriors of Death is a release that I can really get behind and sounds like some sort of soundtrack from hell. I really am liking this release so far.
