Cadaver Carnivore
Devouring Eclipse of Darkest Realm

It took me a good while into Devouring Eclipse of Darkest Realm to figure out who Russia’s Cadaver Carnivore sounds like. It’s an enjoyable, modern one-man death metal project from ‘Necrodaemon’  aka Dmitri Krasnopeew, who has no other credits or bands to his name, and its a sort of chunky atmospheric almost industrial death metal with keyboards, programming, and such.

Then, toward the end of the 9th song “Demon’s Blood”  Krasnopeew bellows “Damnation! Confirmation! Eliminatioooooooon!” and it comes to me…… The Project Hate MCMXCIX, probably the album titled Hate Dominate Congregate, Eliminate is why that popped up but it seemed largely fitting. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t quite as epic, brilliant, or consistently great as TPH, and there are no techno, or electronic parts but he has a Jorgen Sandstrom-ish bellow, and boy when the drop/breakdown happens in “Divine Heresy”, or the start of “In Abyss We Fall” the comparison pops in my head again.

And speaking of drops and breakdowns, Krasnopeew occasionally dips into slam-ish territory with some solid groove and slamming moments ( and even the odd ‘reeee’) as heard on ‘Dai Dark” 0r even “Deadly Plague” with a riff that would be at home on a Pyrexia album, though the cleans vocals he uses for a bit ( and other places on the album), would not.

But for the most part, this is burly, militant mid-paced death metal with heavy use of keyboards for atmospheres (“Void”, ‘Citadel of the Immortal”) and a plethora of influences happening at the same time, that sometimes results in something enjoyable. That said the promo reference that cites Bloodbath, Hail of Bullets and Demigurg, isn’t quite true.

So, as you can tell, Cadaver Carnivore is a bit all over the place, but the self-done is/master /production is solid, even with the programmed drums and he looks to have the talent to keep developing this project and take it to the next level.
