Rising from the ashes of Funeris Nocturnum, Finnish metal troupe Atakhama strive to combine Eastern European black metal bludgeonings with a discernible Florida-style death metal crunch on EXISTENCE INDIFFERENT, making this nine-track offering a tumultuous yet technically sound disc. Tracks like "Predatory Acts" feature an incessant double-bass drum barrage and an atypical guttural growl that you can actually understand, while the instrumental title track hits levels usually reserved for the likes of Morbid Angel and Zyklon with squelching guitars morphing into a blistering black metal mechanism. Prepare to be blown away by the interesting merger of styles conjured up by Atakhama.
