Madrost “The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh”

After their sophomore full length effort in 2014 titled “Into The Aquatic Sector”, Madrost return this year with a brand new record titled “The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh”. With a grim and sinister sound, Madrost come thrashing back with seven new songs for you to twist your neck to. Each of the seven songs on this release are fairly lengthy which gives Madrost plenty of time to mangle you in their metallic tornado of thrashing death metal. Of the seven songs on this record, all seven are intense, vicious, flesh melting and undeniably heavy.

Madrost begins their new record with a  little bit of an intro before subjecting you to purely savage and brain damaging heavy metal. After that intro, Madrost kicks everything into over drive pummeling you with furiously picked riffs, machine gun drumming and vocals that are equally if not more intense than the wall of razor sharp thrash noise that is surrounding them. Each song is a complete sonic juggernaut that takes off at mach ten from the first note and keeps the same pace throughout the entire song providing you with more whiplash than you can possibly handle.

“The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh” is an incredibly skin blistering and skull smashing listen that rolls out seven chaotic and punishing tunes for your enjoyment. While twisting thrash metal and some elements of death metal together, Madrost creates an incredibly head spinning and intense listen that forces you back in your chair the minute that you begin listening. Madrost never really does slow down at all and when they do they still are cruising at a very high speed. And even in songs such as “The Silence In Ruins” where you hear Madrost take a couple of seconds off from their all out barrage, that really is only a couple of seconds before they shred you to pieces some more.

After three years since their last album, Madrost return this year with an incredibly strong effort in the form of “The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh”. This seven track release of molten metal is head spinning, neck twisting and overall just one hell of a good listen.
