PISSGRAVE - Posthumous Humiliation / LP
Philadelphia’s Pissgrave, one of the rawest, most depraved, immoral, and violent bands in present-day death metal, follow up their 2015 Suicidal Euphoria debut with their sophomore album Posthumous Humiliation, an album even more dark, surreal, violent, and perverted than its infamous predecessor. One again produced by Arthur Rizk, this latest will cement the band’s reign in America’s underground death metal scene, not only as one of the most sadistic bands but also one of the most singular ones—with the band’s live show attesting to such a claim. Pissgrave’s slab of nauseating terror is unlike anything going on in the scene, pushing the sonic thresholds of the genre to new vomit-inducing levels. Posthumous Humiliation is ultimately a disturbing and intense listen, a sonic skullfucking devoid of amusement and pleasure and a celebration of pure torment and misery.
