***East Coast one-man psychedelic bestial death metal force Vile Ritual finally emerges from the bowels of hades with its skull-crushing debut full-length album, Caverns of Occultic Hatred. On the forty-minute, eight-track death-torn abomination, Vile Ritual merges the primeval violence of bands like Archgoat and Von with the technical and compositional unpredictability of progressive and atmospheric-leaning death metal bands like The Chasm, Timeghoul, Incantation, Infester and Demilich to conjure a mind-devouring hallucination of mutated, dark and occult death metal carnage. In a way not dissimilar to what we've seen done by bands like Antediluvian, Howls of Ebb, or Chaos Echoes, Vile Ritual's aim with Caverns of Occultic Hatred is that of prying the listener's mind open with violence, expanding it to the dissolution of consciousness and using alchemical, ritualistic and esoteric orchestrations to create a trance-like state that renders the listener trapped and disoriented into a hideous sonic delusion, to be bludgeoned mercilessly with the carnage of the barbaric blackened death metal that shapes the other half of its darkened, gruesome soul. A record shrouded in shapeshifting ambivalence, Caverns of Occultic Hatred is a horrific and disembodied descent into the madness and chaos of primeval impulses, insanity, and of the dissolution of reality via total sensorial and auditory annihilation.
