Charon - Sulphur Seraph: The Archon Principle (2012)


I have my work cut out for me on here, soon I'll be posting a part of my top metal albums of 2012. I'm more into showing you guys the more overlooked shit of 2012 until then, rather than post Pig Destroyers Book Burner I give you guys Charon of Germany with their first full-length since being a band for fifteen years.

This wretched spew is titled Sulphur Seraph: The Archon Principle and it is festering in its own filth of bestial death metal, a concoction of cavernous riffing, marching drums, bellowed growls and tortured shrieks all wrapped up in a dank atmosphere.

Grab if you like: Mitochondrion, Teitanblood, Witchrist

    1. Definitely, I actually turned to this album quite late in the year. I mean, it's been out since the beginning of fucking January! I've been balls deep into its filth though.

    1. Same here, It's definitely going to be up there in my top tier of 2012 albums! People can say its been a bad year for metal all they like, every year is good if you know where to look. In saying that though, I thought 2011 was exceptionally good.

      (Especially for the forward movement of Death Metal, thanks to Mitochondrion, Antediluvian, Disma, Sonne Adam, Ritual Necromancy, Autopsy, Tetitanblood, etc.)

  4. This year is turning out pretty damn incredible for DM as well. I think that putrevore album is even better than disma. Aevangelist and desolate shrine are great but don't touch antediluvian and mitochondrion
    But we also have corrosive carcass, binah, horrendous, skeletal remains, abyssal, monomakh,
    Muknal, and of course the mighty Necrovation. I was very obsessed with DM this year. That's not even naming all the brutal DM!

    1. Antedeiluvian and Mitochondrion made it extremely hard to top. I like that you say you find Putrevore's newest release better than Disma's last year, though it's close, I would still have to say I err more on Disma for their cavernous qualities.

      I'll say this though, expect Proclamation's "Nether Tombs of Abaddon" among the top in my list. A fucking filthy release that has appealed to me a lot.
