Image of Mutilation Rites - Empyrean LP


(Gilead Media - Clear vinyl) Armed to the teeth with decimating riffs and a swaggering mean streak, Mutilation Rites have crafted one of the best debut albums I’ve heard in forever, not to mention one of the year’s best black metal albums with Empyrean. If you’re burned out on art house black metal and looking for some tough-as-nails NYC shit that’ll flat-out knock your dick in the dirt, you’ve just found your new favorite band.
