05. The Purging
06. Verses of Deformity
German brutal death metal band Defeated Sanity don’t need many introductions. Having a sound that is built on early Cannibal Corpse, but with a ridiculous amount of added brutality a la Disgorge, their blend of slam and technical death metal is delightful to fans of either genre. All of their releases have been met with at least some degree of acclaim, so their fourth album Passages Into Deformity has a lot to live up to.

[Self Release/Total Deathcore]
Thanks to the internet and inexpensive studio equipment, there’s an increasing surge of bands that are built almost entirely as an online presence first and foremost. This movement seems to flourish in the realm of deathcore in particular, where bands like Slice the Cake get more attention than many touring bands. One such band, Infant Annihilator, have quickly gained notoriety across the internet sparked by a viral music video and a sense of irony and dark comedy that is welcomed by this community of deathcore fans. The group’s first album The Palpable Leprosy of Pollution was highly anticipated, but the reaction so far has been mixed, and rightly so. Infant Annihilator first made their name online through simulated gay sex among its members, which just goes to show how seriously they take themselves. While having a carefree attitude and the ability to make and take jokes is an admirable trait, the carelessness shows through the music as well.
Remember that silly tech-deathcore band from last week that ran around the woods and had buttsex with each other? Well as a token of gratitude for the support and their viral reach with the video, Infant Annihilator have done a deathcore style cover/remix of PSY‘s cross-cultural pop hit ‘Gangnam Style.’ They’ve left the original vocals intact, which makes for an odd clash against the brutal musical stylings, bit it’s certainly interesting enough. I can dig the instrumental work aside from the gratuitous use of breakdowns, but it’s still pretty damn cool.
Let me be honest, when I saw the band name and video thumbnail, I thought this was going to be terrible. It even started out like it might be lazy deathcore. Oh, I was so wrong. This is awesome. It crushes faces. Infant Annihilator are an internet band that do really heavy technical deathcore. The song is called ‘Decapitation Fornication’ and it’s super heavy and the video is beyond hilarious. Also a bit NSFW. It’s ok, the song is worth watching some simulated buttsex.
Infant Annihilator are working on an album titled The Palpable Leprosy of Pollution, with a target release date of the following winter. Stay tuned for more awesomeness. Oh, and there’s another song by them after the cut.
