A terrified ambient intro lets everyone know that something deeply unpleasant is about to start, and quickly “Boiling Evil” lives up to its name. Apparently arriving from nowhere, SPEK FREM is a no-nonsense gang, and their debut album reflects that 30-minute philosophy of ball-out brutality and occasional scary interludes. It is a proven formula, but one that never gets old: especially when performed with this degree of swing eye intensity.

Despite being ubiquitous for almost 40 years, death metal undeniably goes through periods of creative stagnation. Right now, the genre is exploding again, and bands like SPEK FREM gives the stage a welcome shot of adrenaline and youthful talk. These are audibly imbued with old-fashioned values, but with a very modern sense of white knuckle urgency, short, vicious and periodically groovy bits of sonic violence that whiz past at a breathless pace, leaving a trail of broken necks and broken teeth in their wake .

“The Eucharist intact” is two minutes of blank-eyed hostility, with shades of brutal slam balanced out of the clean, stubborn filth of it all. A relative epic of four minutes, “Unrecognizable” is a glutinous feast of knucklehead grooves and pitiful chaos. The title track is crazy, DECIDE-like diving into the gnawing darkness, with vocalist Kane Gelaznik channel several demons over a scattered wave of dissonant tough. Most effective of all, “Carnivorous spell” is a restless, simple shot with classic-adjacent death metal riffs, jarring tempo changes, off-kilter syncopation and gruesome vocal slurry. It is such a monstrous outburst of noise that the dark, disturbing, obsidian drones of “I feel nothing” seems relatively reassuring in comparison.

Although it is characterized by short, bloody skirmishes such as “Tortured Sacrament” and “Seriously injured”, “Boiling Evil” drop a clue or two about the depth of SPEK FREMhis view of death. Both “Predatory Savior” and “Pious Killing Floor” suggests a more adventurous approach, with the latter in particular, adding some heroic, AUTOPSY-like doom riff to the band’s nearsighted disgusting recipe, before the album ends with a final, disturbing wave of bubbling, analog fear. Death metal done properly and with the greatest conviction, in other words. Let the vomiting begin.
