Sedimentum
Suppuration Morphogenesiaque

I’m sure you’re familiar with the snare crack at the beginning of Cannibal Corpse’s “Devoured by Vermin”, 1,2,3, 4… BLAAAAAARGGGGHHHH! Well, that’s how Sedimentum start off their debut Suppuration Morphogenesiaque, with a quick snare count and then the brutality of “Krypto Chronique II” KICKS (yes capitals) into automatic, 0-60 overdrive. The track slows to a zombie crawl around the two-minute mark before striking a killing blow by track’s end. This is Sedimentum.

Hailing from Quebec, and active since 2018, the four-piece released two demos and two split albums before spawning Suppuration Morphogenesiaque. Sedimentum plays with a cavernous production, guitars, and bass churn in the stygian miasma, creating an Incantation-influenced sound; murky and sinister. I must make the comparison to Incantation; this is not a bad thing I promise you, because it is the sound that Onward to Golgotha and Mortal Throne of Nazarene made famous.

This isn’t just a blast-laden slab of Death Metal, as track two “Excrétions Basaltiques” demonstrates with a slow, churning atmosphere. Sedimentum knows how to pace an album with the title track bouncing between gut-churning slowness and brutal savagery. I could even make a comparison to Last Days of Humanity and Blasphemy and not be worried about repercussions. This is bear attack brutality.

“Nécromasse”, “Supplice” and “Un Grotesque Panorama” fill out the remainder of the album with “Supplice” being an anti-Christian burner and “Un Grotesque Panorama” being the end sludge that comes from industrial waste depositories. In the end, I have listened to this release constantly, as far as debut albums go this is a fucking killer and I cannot recommend it enough. Show these guys some love and you won’t be disappointed.
