Ascended Dead - Abhorrent Manifestation CD
ASCENDED DEAD (CA, USA) - Abhorrent Manifestation CD (2017). The band's highly anticipated debut full-length album.
Surprisingly born under San Diego's sun, Ascended Dead are nevertheless as ugly as it can be: not by design nor by trying their best to sound that way, but just because that foul stench they ooze from every pore is their true nature. Yes, their founding members and some of their current members have played or are still playing in other bands, but none of this really matters, as their mainman JR stresses that "Everything we've attained was built from the ground up, and we’d like to maintain as much of a stand-alone legacy as we can."
Ascended Dead are a rare case of a band who just go for it and whose DNA is naturally carrying that "Fuck The World" element - that simple idea of not waiting, an instinct to destroy everything in sight. Necrovore, Insanity, or even Sarcófago are just of some of the acts they’ve been compared to, but it doesn’t really matter, because after one raw-as-fuck demo, one EP, and two compilations, Abhorrent Manifestation is the sound of a band who have come to terms with their own bestiality, and instead of trying to tame it, they’ve decided to ride the wave and let it overflow everything. **originally published on invictusproductions666.bandcamp.com** Dark Descent Records – DDR177CD
