Review Summary: Hyperdontia’s sophomore album proves that the death metal revival scene is live and well

As if 2021’s cavernous outfits in the death metal realm haven’t overwhelmed us enough this year, here we are, unwillingly dealt a massive onslaught of the same ‘ol putrid, rotten formula of the old school death metal revival scene. Some might beckon it a worthless repetition of what’s already been done before. Yet, on the contrary, here we are intaking a healthy dosage of fresh, relentless classic old school style death metal; a helping that is protruding grime, filth, and absolute gruesome debauchery.

This is album exemplifies the true prowess of the old-school worshipping formula that is ever prevalent in those with the hopes of recreating the vision of its forefathers whilst pulling its listeners down the spiraling abyss they wish to portray. Denmark’s Hyperdontia is on the forefront of proving such intentions, and their efforts are far from lackluster.

“Snakes of Innards” comes out with slow doomy riffs that are layered in filth, later transitioning into fast tremolo picking alongside melo-death style riffs that leave you suffocating and gasping for air. The track progresses to showcase elements of solid death doom styled signatures that are notable in its own unique old-school style, and do not go unnoticed. Lots of thrashy elements permeate the sound on this track.

“Trapped in the Void” starts off with pummeling drums that are quickly met with heavy riffs from the likes of early Morbid Angel. The vocals are deep, low, and mudded behind the fantastic melodic riffs that continue to batter your ear drums with old school style groove. The song progresses to slowly breakdown into chunky and meatier bridges while transitioning into speedier tremolos. It resonates like the track’s sumptuous thick bass; like the remains of a dismembered corpse soiling the ground beneath it.

“Beast Within” opens up like a straight up tribute to the almighty Autopsy, with its slow, sludgy, and doom-esque laden riffs, followed by a foreboding growl that leaves you smothered in cacophonous horror. This track continues to showcase the band’s adept understanding of their Finnish death metal style.

“Coils of Wrath” starts off with belting drums and vicious guitar riffs of the likes of early Immolation. The transitions are exemplary of chuggy and thrash styled riffs, followed by the deep and murky style of the tremolos that substantiate most of this old-school death metal worship.

“Grinding Teeth” delivers fierce riffage followed by more immense vocals; very reminiscent of the likes of early Incantation. The riffs and blast beats are filled with groove, more old-school style death-doom, and fantastic thrashy transitions that permeate those forsaken lairs.

“Lacerated and Bursting” exemplifies more of a death-grind aspect while still withholding the values that really proves Hyperdontia’s extraordinary love for filthy ***ing death metal; the tremolos will cover your pathetic soul in excessive amounts of rotting rhythmic dissonance.

“Wretched Mockery of Creation” is a short yet more aggressive track that focuses to be more out front with its disgusting riffs and blast beats. The crawling leads on this album prove to be prominent in Hyperdontia’s approach on this latest addition as it contributes to the atmosphere and direction with this album.

“Impervious Veil” is the final track and starts off with yet another doom-death metal riff and transitions over to a heavy old school death metal style groove. This track delivers a barrage of churning tremolos that vary from rabid fast tempos to those slow and discordant riffs. This album goes out with a bang; a bang that overtly forces you to constantly bang your ***ing head through and through, and because that’s what death metal was meant to be.

Hyperdontia’s sophomore album proves that the death metal revival scene is live and well, and that old-school death metal worship can be done right.

Favorite track: Lacerated and Bursting

The leads on this whole thing are done well. The transitions are seamless and are as equally ferocious. I thought they executed that very well with their debut on Nexus of Teeth. Its awesome that these guys found an ability to elevate their sound along with cleaner production while not having to change too much about their style.

I can't help but picture metal bands scrolling through an infinite catalog of randomized dark/gothic oversaturated album covers when it comes time to selecting art. It's almost like there's some algorithm pumping these out

Are those the ones that do the auto name generators too? Some of those auto responses are passable - which probably says more about the genre of metal than the system churning out random band names

Art-wise you could edit an Autopsy logo on top and I'd totally believe it was their new album.

Album is a cool occasional jam

I thought this was better than their debut as well, but I almost equally enjoyed both of them. Nexus of Teeth was an absolute banger and I'm glad they continued to write more material. This album just shows that they're maturing and becoming more refined as a band.
