Congealed Putrescence – Within the Ceaseless Murk (Swampy Death Metal)


Here’s another one of these releases, but, hey, I’ll take it. I was going to call it murky death metal, which I did the other day for another release, and which this certainly is, I mean look at the EP’s title! But, since these scumbags are from New Orleans I figured swampy would be a better fit. This shit’s a swamp dripping with stale moss and all of that. Four tracks is about all you need of this kind of thing, and that’s exactly what you get with Congealed Putrescence’s latest, Within the Ceaseless Murk.


Could you take much more? I don’t know, probably. Do you need to? Again, also a probably, as in probably not. Congealed Putrescence are clear about what they do in every detail. From the riffs bubbling turbulence on the surface of this disgusting morass of death metal, to the unremitting drum lines, Within the Ceaseless Murk is completely true to form. Great for a quick spin to stir up some raw, inner power and, hey, now and then it’s easy to pull it out for the same effect. Unlikely to tire or bore, it’s short and sick.
