Nihilistic Contentment (Earache)

By: Mike SOS

Exmortem's musical offering is technical, brutal, and abrasive, as the outfit's latest 10-track depraved death metal derivations found on Nihilistic Contentment wield the kind of power usually reserved for bands like Morbid Angel, Suffocation, and Cryptopsy. Guttural vocals, breakneck rhythms, grinding fretwork, and a true sense of impending doom are all major cogs in the Exmortem machine, and these items are relentlessly drilled into your head via tracks like the crushing "Bitter Disciplin" and the slow rot of "Division of Genocide Pleasure". While many may argue over the lack of creativity in this Danish band's songwriting, the final product is effective enough to stir the interest of your average death metal listener, even if Exmortem wears its influences too visibly on its sleeve.
