It's never wise for bands to make too many claims about themselves. It divides those who agree with those who don't, and plants expectation in potential fans. Seemingly with that in mind, Internecine Excoriation make no claim with which to either invite or deter listeners, simply letting the music speak for itself. Besides the obvious Death Metal-ish bandname and logo, the artwork and title of this demo/EP make it abundantly clear that death metal is at hand. And not merely death metal, either.
Metal of the most unholy death; a tremor of the unearthly rumbling from the bowels of hell. IE use a barrage of technical yet upsetingly crushing riffs, so the generally mid-paced tempo nods towards some of the established sounds of Incantation and Immolation, but with a nod towards the vile approach of early Gorguts, Demilich and Asphyx. The production provides a muddy, obscuring sound that kindly suggests that anyone looking for clinical, clean death metal would do well to fuck off. Vocally, the uniquely low utterances suggest daemonic bowel-rot as their inspiration, or perhaps their source.
In the live setting IE provide an imposing sound, but this demo is crushing from all angles, making it slightly difficult to walk after listening to it at volume. If you like your death metal with some actual death in it, Prognosticate the Decrepitude is something most definitely worth possessing.
