Eximperitus… – Prajecyrujučy Sinhuliarnaje…

We usually don’t abbreviate band names or album titles in our headlines, if it can be at all avoided. Belarusian Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum and their succinctly named album Prajecyrujučy Sinhuliarnaje Wypramieńwańnie Daktryny Absaliutnaha J Usiopahłynaĺnaha Zła Skroź Šaścihrannuju Pryzmu Sîn-Ahhī-Erība Na Hipierpawierchniu Zadyjakaĺnaha Kaŭčęha Zasnawaĺnikaŭ Kosmatęchničnaha Ordęna Palieakantakta, Najstaražytnyja Ipastasi Dawosiewych Cywilizacyj Prywodziać U Ruch Ręzanansny Transfarmatar Časowapadobnaj Biaskoncaści Budučyni U Ćwiardyniach Absierwatoryi Nwn-Hu-Kek-Amon, Uwasabliajučy Ŭ Ęfirnuju Matęryju Prach Ałulima Na Zachad Ad Ękzapłaniety PSRB 1620-26b, released in June last year, made it difficult to avoid, though.

While the gimmick of unbelievably complicated and lengthy titles immediately made us think of some goregrind schtick, the cover image is far more indicative of what this is: violent, technical and very atmospheric death metal with some severe occult interests attached. Indeed, the name is apparently a neologism constructed from Ancient Egyptian, Sumerian, Akkadian and Latin, and is founded on chaos-gnostic occult ideas usually associated with black rather than death metal.
As far as the sound goes, Obscure, Dying Fetus, Odious Mortem, and of course Nile are all bands that are easy to bring up when trying to describe Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum’s sound, but there’s also a big piece of brutal death apparent in the drum sound and level of aggression. There are plenty of blast beats, chugging chords and a quick shifting back and forth between Eastern/occult sounding melodies and more pure death metal riffing. The vocals are deep, grunting and raw – there is little variation, but none is needed when the baseline is this great. To be clear, when it comes to the death metal found on this album, there is certainly nothing groundbreaking to be found. But ground should only be broken if there is any particular need to do so, and in this case, there isn’t.

In addition to the tech-/brutal death metal, there is also quite a few shorter ritualistic and atmospheric interludes, which dominate the final track completely, as guitars meet timpani and otherworldly noises and voices. The cover, which we believe depicts the Egyptian god Horus in front of an epic background replete with floating planets and pyramids and a somewhat devilish demon visage, reinforces the occult, old-Gods oriented theme of the album. The band is generally shrouded in mystery, with few of the bandmembers really being known at all. Cynics may write all of this off as gimmicky, along with the band name and album and song titles, but we at Archaic Triad feel that all of this is simply great. There’s no need for bitches to bitch about any of this.

In sum, Prajecyrujučy Sinhuliarnaje Wypramieńwańnie Daktryny Absaliutnaha J Usiopahłynaĺnaha Zła Skroź Šaścihrannuju Pryzmu Sîn-Ahhī-Erība Na Hipierpawierchniu Zadyjakaĺnaha Kaŭčęha Zasnawaĺnikaŭ Kosmatęchničnaha Ordęna Palieakantakta, Najstaražytnyja Ipastasi Dawosiewych Cywilizacyj Prywodziać U Ruch Ręzanansny Transfarmatar Časowapadobnaj Biaskoncaści Budučyni U Ćwiardyniach Absierwatoryi Nwn-Hu-Kek-Amon, Uwasabliajučy Ŭ Ęfirnuju Matęryju Prach Ałulima Na Zachad Ad Ękzapłaniety PSRB 1620-26b is a great piece of tech-death, which any fan of the genre really shouldn’t miss. It is available for digital download from the band’s Bandcamp page, and can also be purchased from your local well-assorted technical death metal dealer, or Discogs.
