Hey! Listen to Fumigation/The Path To R’lyeh!

Split recordings are a somewhat risky proposition. As a concept, splits call for a certain level of coherence, while demanding some semblance of variety at the same time. After all, if you’re looking for a two-fer, there’s little reason for each side of the record to sound exactly the same. Thankfully, Canadian death metal groups Fumigation and The Path of R’lyeh understand this dynamic, and have released an excellent, cohesive, yet appropriately diverse death metal onslaught with Invasion.
