Song of the Week: Immolation – Destructive Currents

This week has been all about Immolation’s superb new album Atonement. This is the first song I heard from the CD and it’s my current favourite. Destructive Currents is seismic enough to deliver on the promise of its title but it’s also delivered with confident restraint so that the twisting, blackened death metal riffs have maximum impact. There have been fun releases so far this year, like Kreator’s Gods of Violence but this stuff is serious: imposing, controlled and impressive. With Atonement, Immolation has set the bar for extreme metal in 2017.

  1. This kicked the morning off quite nicely. The kiddo seemed to enjoy it, too… shot me a look when the vocals kicked in, I said “dog?” and then back to the nodding. I couldn’t listen to a full album, cause that vocal thing doesn’t much do it for me, but that was, eh, a nice refreshing blast of metal to start the week!
