Cesspool Of Corruption - Eradication Of The Subservient

Everything is bigger in Texas. Often proclaimed, somewhat backed by the brutes behind Cesspool Of Corruption's EP "Eradication Of The Subservient". Original released in 2016 and rereleased in 2020. An EP that could be held in higher regards if it were released in the late 2000's amongst the waves of deathcore as the genre quickly interchanged.

'Emergence Of Truth' reeks of All Shall Perish complete fandom, whilst opener 'Ubiquitous Presence' offers a more grinding-death metal complexity, in the veins of the great Aborted. Vocals are fast and heavy; an eclectic mix of styles thrown in that submits to any listener that this is deathcore at its most beserk. The spanking riffage is reminiscent of the melodeath aspect, often entering territories of The Black Dahlia Murder with a squirt of breakdown sauce. Whilst the bass is often drowned amongst the lacking modern production, the drumming begs of attention and could be considered the band's most admirable offering.

Whilst this EP might have unfortunately but deservedly slipped through the radar over the years, there is still much to gain from listening to it. 'Humanoid Of Fear' is the final track within, and the band's most interesting piece of music at hand. The track is arguably too long for the avid core listener, clocking in at nine minutes and ten seconds. However, this length only adds to the creativity as the band formulate luscious, melodic tinged solos that are as gorgeous sounding as anything the deathcore genre has ever touched upon. Then the vocals kick in heavier than ever which sounds like you're being thrown off a mountain and hitting every bump on the way down! More of these monolithic moments on the EP would of definitely broken out Cesspool Of Corruption into more opportunities for themselves, that are hopefully still available to seize.
