Splitting Limbs Texas Style: 5 Way Split From Ossuary Industries

Something pretty damn giddy to be excited about here. Texas based record label Ossuary Industries has released the second part of its Limb Splitter series by including 5 different bands with a touch of death metal laced in there somewhere throughout 18 tracks.

It would be hard to describe every single song in detail, but in a few short paragraphs, i’ll describe the songs from each band as a whole.

Ingurgitate- in their 4 tracks, they display their raw blending of traditional death metal, with some of the true Texas style of death metal. Guttural vocals, some wicked drumming from The Dobber, and some meaningful riffing blend together nicely here.

Hod- easy way to describe this band:  FUCKIN METAL! Or if you wanna be all fancy about it, blackened death metal, with no gloss, no pomp and circumstance, and no gimmickry. True and as real as it gets. 3 songs showcase the renegade style they’ve always known how to do with awesome guitar work, fast drum blasting, and Vladibeer spurting out some rather evil vocals. Sort of giving you an idea of when the next full length from these San Antonio based heathens will come.

Iniquitous- well here’s a supergroup for you. Featuring current and former members of esteemed metal bands such as Solstice, Sarcolytic, and Suffocation, they only have 3 tracks to work with, and they deliver a quite punishing amount of death metal for the masses. Wicked vocals, some rather catchy guitar work, and some awesome drumming from Mike Smith best sum up this collective.

Locusta- pretty much the only non Texas band to appear on this split, but the 4 tracks they bring are just monumentally earth shaking. Their blend of death metal, black metal, and progressive work splendidly well, and it also doesn’t hurt that they have a Death cover on here, Human‘s “See Through Dreams”, it rules.

Demoniacal Genuflection- to be honest its basically 3/5ths of Ingurgitate, but its not a bad thing, trust me. Its still death metal, but a little bit more wickedly paced, and darker. Punishing riffs, disgusting vocals, and Dobber steadying the pace with his awesome drumwork.

But if you want one of 2012′s most punishing split releases, make your effort to give Limb Splitter II your undivided attention.

French black metal band Deathspell Omega recently released a new compilation album that contains two songs. The songs were previously released separately on the  Crushing the Holy Trinity and From the Entrails to the Dirt compilations. “Diabolus Absconditus” and Mass Grave Aestheticsboth exceed nineteen minutes in length and are epic to say the least.
