D-beat destruction meets death metal deviance on INTERMINABLE NIGHT, the savage seven-track affair from California’s Acephalix. Welcoming crust metal, Swedish death, and hardcore punk into their sphere of influence with open arms and broken bones (“Warm Flesh”), this quartet repeatedly draws from the bag of old school extreme metal tricks to relentlessly hammer out track after track of filth-laden brutality, adroitly accentuating every blood-curdling bellow and punishing rhythmic pattern with enough venom and vitriol to maintain the heightened level of malevolence (“IN Arms of Nothing”) that is carried throughout this short and swift assault. Acephalix has produced a solid slab of metal steeped in the mindset of the days of yore and custom made for those prefer the nasty and grimy underbelly on the spectrum.
