Exclusive Album Stream: Sarpanitum, Blessed Be My Brothers
Through our many years of running this stupid website we’ve learned that anything that comes our way from Willowtip Records is always worth a listen. The label has a knack for discovering diamonds in the rough, particularly on the heavier end of the death metal spectrum. Sure, not every single record they’ve ever put out floats our boat, but at the very least they’re all interesting.
When Sarpanitum’s new full length Blessed Be My Brothers came across our
desks screens it was love at first listen, like a sexy, beautiful used car in tip-top shape that you’ve been fawning over in the classifieds section of the paper for weeks. You’ve got your ripping old-school death metal chassis, your proggy underpinnings, a heavy dose of atmospheric detail and a frosty layer of char-grilled, blackened paint. Shit’s sleek as hell! Only later did we learn that Leon Macey of long-running UK DM duo Mithras handles drum duties here, but it makes perfect sense.
Stream Blessed Be My Brothers below; it will come out on February 17th and can be pre-ordered here.
