Exclusive Track Debut: Morbid Evils’ “South of Hell”
Finnish four-piece Morbid Evils may have been formed by Rotten Sound vocalist Keijo Niinimaa, but the only thing the two bands have in common is being heavy as fuck. Whereas Rotten Sound play schizophrenic, seizure-inducing grindcore, Morbid Evils play filthy, throbbing sludge-doom. Put another way: if Rotten Sound is a straight razor, Morbid Evils is a sledge hammer. It may take your attacker more time to lift his weapon of choice, but that weapon will still allow him to do terrible things to your body.
Yes, Morbid Evils is its own special thing… and it’s one that we love. The band’s debut album, In Hate with The Burning World, has fast become a favorite at the MetalSucks Mansion, thanks to its seemingly-endless amount of crushing elephants marching riffs and its bleak, muddy sound. In Hate with The Burning World is capital-“E” Evil.
How capital-“E” Evil, you ask? Well, let’s put it this way: today we’re proud to be debuting the song “South of Hell,” which any metal fan worth his denim jacket knows is basically throwing down the gauntlet and declaring, “Hey, we went even further down into the pit of despair than Slayer did.” Which is pretty goddamn bold. Lucky for all of us, it also happens to be true!
