Cerekloth – “In The Midst Of Life We Are In Death”

Cerekloth – “In The Midst Of Life We Are In Death” (Hells Headbangers/ Hammerheart Records)

Eerie, sinister metal from Denmark! Definitely not fans of Hans Christian Andersen, Cerekloth sing to the tune of morbid, grim death. Deep, guttural vocals from Jens Bendtsen Pedersen prominently drive dark songs like ‘Halo Of Syringes’, ‘Mesmerizing Holy Death’ and ‘When Outcast Become Kings’. Graced by ultra heavy riffs and depth charge bass that could sink a ship, the brilliance of Cerekloth comes from the haunting clanging guitar melodies and evil warblings that contrast superbly with the band’s undeniable power. Unlike a lot’ve their death metal peers, these Danes are in no hurry to deliver their pound of fetid flesh – instead, they want to crush you slowly in agonizing death – but only after they’ve scared the living shit out’ve you in the nightmare of this excellent album.
