flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) It's a blistering mess of maniacal, blackened destruction that is clearly not for the faint of heart. The vocals cut in jagged formation like a thousand shards of glass, and the guitars possess the welcoming qualities of a bad acid trip in a torture dungeon. That's not even to mention the insanely sporadic and always impressive drumming.

about

The professor has gathered the performers and articulated their expressions. The unformed and unstable matters have coalesced and stratified. The rhizome is presented as it dissolves.

Dismantling traditional tropes and reassembling them over a warped scaffold of noise and experimentation, death metal mavericks Plague Rider continue to push at the boundaries of their genre with Rhizome.

Relentless sinewy riffs interlace with frenetic drum work, whilst layers of noise and varied inhuman vocal delivery merge into a barely contained whole. A challenging listen which is as vicious as it is expansive, Rhizome represents the shifting neural network of a continuously evolving sonic entity.

Panic is creation.
