If by any means you feel your body completely torn apart after the first track “Black Blood”, don’t worry, it’s normal. After all, you’ve just gone through the most extensive Death Metal beating of the year in one single track. The remains of Katalysator joined forces once again. The Ahmann Brothers got together with Hampe Death and Andreas Meisingseth and added J.K. on the drums to form Invidious, a Death Metal force of nature that has no regard for human life. They’re still creating mesmerizing crushing sounds with the usual influences (Autopsy, Possessed), but it is not an exercise in nostalgia, nor is it riddled with the Swedish death clichés. The production is raw but perfectly in tune with the dark, oppressive basements where the first Death Metal bands made their anthems. The pure satanic mayhem unleashed upon us for almost 14 minutes makes us wonder why we thought that any Death Metal album this year could even compare to this savage display of technical drumming, psychotic riffs and demonic vocals. Invidious end 2013 with a loud and clear statement: they are here to take Death Metal back to the realms of the underworld. The highest of standards has been set; it is up to Invidious to live up to them.
