Your Stigmata explores horrifying musical passages and a wide range of influences, these combined with the instrumental capability of Deathbreed make for an incredibly evil and scolding piece of work. The vocalist has such a low and brooding voice it reflects the rest of the music majestically. Some may think Death Metal is a narrow genre; whilst it’s hard to get into, this EP would be a good place to start. The diversity from earth quaking riffs to virtuosic shred is explored quickly in Stigmata and Hivemind. There’s plenty to bang your head to, and there’s plenty to smash your room to. As a showcase it’s effective and shows what the band do best, write dirty and mean music. Those outside of this genre should definitely listen with an open mind. From Prelude all the way to Pripyat is a hectic journey, but incredibly satisfying.
