Corpse Garden are a band from Costa Rica that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very atmospheric and brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "IAO 269" which was released by Godz Of War Productions.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful while the music also brings in a great amount of atmospheric elements as well as the vocals being mostly death metal growls and screams and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some progressive and technical elements and during the faster sections of the songs the music brings in a great amount of brutality, clean playing can also be heard briefly and when spoken word parts are utilized they give the music more of a ritualistic feeling and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Corpse Garden creates another recording that remains true to the atmospheric and brutal style of death metal from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Thelema and Gnosticism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Corpse Garden and if you are a fan of atmospheric and brutal death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Aeon Of Horus" "Selonomantic Ecstasies" "The Elevenfold Vibration" and "Loathing". 8 out of 10.
