Cursed Excruciation are a solo project from Brazil that plays a very old school and blasphemous mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of his self released 2021 demo "Morbid Catholicism".
A very dark sounding intro starts off the demo which also adds in a brief use of horror movie style keyboards before going into a heavier musical direction. Most of the music is also very heavily rooted in the early 90's era and the vocals are a m ixture of demonic death metal growls and grim yet deep black metal screams.
Dark sounding melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats. When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the music more of a raw feeling without the use of power chords which are mostly added into the slower sections along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, at times the music also captures a ritualistic atmosphere as well as all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them
Cursed Excruciation plays a musical style that goes back to the early 90's era of black and death metal. The production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover the dark side of Catholicism and Blasphemy themes.
In my opinion Cursed Excruciation are a very great sounding old school and blasphemous mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Morbid Catholicism". 8 out of 10.
