This Danish powerhouse takes their sci-fi inspired death metal to near slam territory on their newest release. The headbanging that ensues not only breaks necks, but could destroy galaxies too.
Favorite track: The Order of Pegasus Light.
From beyond the reach of our solar system comes the Downfall of the Apostates; fast, brutal and unearthly new death metal from Denmark's DEIQUISITOR.
Comprised of veterans of the Danish scene, Downfall of the Apostates includes nine new songs recorded at Ballade Studios in Copenhagen and mastered at Resonance Sound Studios by Dan Lowndes. Slightly more varied than the debut self-titled album from 2016, without losing the uncompromising fist-to-the-face death metal approach for which the band are known. Downfall of the Apostates dwells on occult science, conspiracies and the extraterrestrial and is accompanied once more by a MFJørg cover illustration.
Dark Descent Records will release Downfall of the Apostates on CD, digital and vinyl formats on April 23.
released March 22, 2018

I can't formally retract the erroneous 2.0 I gave this back in 2018, but I can say that, five years on, I've come around to this record in a big way. Quality death metal with great atmosphere without being "atmospheric" (read: boring) metal. Diabolus in Muzaka
