It’s getting to the point with Everlasting Spew Records that it gets harder and harder to keep up on all of the awesome releases that they are finding.  There is no exception here with Texas’ Infuriate with their debut record Infuriate. Featuring members of Sarcolytic, Sect Of Execration, Images of Violence, ID and Whore Of Bethlehem these guys definitely waste no time in attempting to rip the listener’s ears off with their brand of brutal blackened death metal. Opening up with “Juggernaut of Pestilence” I am reminded of Prostitute Disfigurement’s Torn into Bloated Form with Infuriates to use blasts beats to build up grooves and then accelerate through them.  Riff wise, this definitely caught my attention as it’s not overly technical but it’s brutal and catchy. Reminds of me of old Gorgasm at times.

“Slaughter of Salvation” reminds of “Despise the Sun” Era Suffocation.  Especially with the way the tune starts off.  What’s nice about Infuriate and that the longest track on the album is a little over four minutes so pretty much throughout all nine tracks you are just continued to get pummeled with brutally catchy death metal. Sterling Junkin’s drumming outstanding and I must say that this one took me a few listens to get into because I was thrown off by the band descriptions I was hearing.  I guess I don’t hear that much Hate Eternal.  Not that they aren’t an influence. I just hear different influences in there sound.

“Collective Suffering” is a blasting rage of groove with minor third harmonies using octaves.  Maybe there is some Hate Eternal influence. This track builds into a massive circle pit section towards the middle of the track. Jason Garza absolutely kills it on vox and handling half of the riffing duties along with Steven Watkins. “Engastration” continues the trend of relentlessly pummeling death metal.  Through the first four tracks. I can’t find a weak moment. “Only Pain Remains” is probably my favorite track on this as I really like the layers of groove the tune opens up with. “Matando” is probably the best rager.  Might I add that classic underground artist Jon Zig did a fantastic job with the cover art.

Infuriate definitely have an excellent formula for brutal death metal here and I like that it is just the right amount of technical versus other bands out there trying to do this style that might get focused on the chop aspect, Infuriate seemed focused on composing intensely brutal U.S death metal.  This is one of the best death metal album I have heard from Texas in quite some time. This might be my new go to the gym album as I think this one continues to keep the listener amped with their flare and aggression. Everlasting Spew you have done it again.  Recommended.
