More About the Album

Justin Vølus and Jared Moran of Psionic Madness and Out Of The Mouth Of Graves join forces once more to bring us thirteen tracks of blisteringly abbrasive deathgrind. For those who are already familiar with Maggot Crown’s work, you will find many of the same elements that you loved previously, along with plenty of new innovation and an expanded overall sound. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the project, then you are in for a treat.

Justin’s vocal delivery is as powerful as ever, hitting the listener with crushingly powerful gutturals and raw biting shrieked techniques. The balance struck between the two styles keeps things fresh and exciting an is matched in variety by the album’s instrumental work. There’s a somewhat cavernous quality to the gutturals that gives the album a subtle haunting quality that creeps beneath the violence.

Jared comes at us full force with his patented human drum machine delivery, assaulting the listener without any hope of respite. His work is so furious and abbrasive that it hardly seems human. We also have Jared to thank for the rhythm guitar and bass work on the album, which adds a whole new layer of depth the an already swirling maelstrom of dissonant sound. Cutting through this wall of sound like a buzzsaw is Justin’s lead guitar work, which pushes ever forward on unstoppable march towards oblivion.

In summary, if you like raw, aggressive deathgrind backed by expert technical proficiency and unmatched physical power then do not miss Apparition of Faces.
