TAR019 Lord Mantis - Pervertor
These hallways seem endless to me, to you? But I will find you. I can hear the rushing blood, coarse and thick with suppressed shrieks.
The thumps, they speaks to me in primal note of subjugations. Can you hear them? I know you can.
This dance, this trail, it has lasted too long now, you hear. I heard the rattling of the blinds. The door. The hush.
Do not worry. I take pride in attention. Do not worry.
“Pervertor” is the second full-length of Chicago’s Lord Mantis, and it’s utterly monstrous. The ‘blackened sludge’ label they use to describe their music is more or less accurate, but it doesn’t come close to conveying the sickening heaviness of this release. If Converge and Neurosis combined to make some sort of twisted offspring, this is what it would sound like.
“…this band has conjured up an album that is ahead of its time – they have been able to harness pure evil and shape it into sonic torment.” – Cvlt Nation
