Music ReviewsUncategorizedPost Mortal Possession-Perpetual Descent

I heard the whirring blades and tank treads in the distance. I caught a glimpse of the colossal, titanium abattoir rolling over the defilers and gluttons and tyrants. I heard their screams as the killing machine gurgled in satisfaction. I saw its four operators grin approvingly.

Post Mortal Possession are the band that devoured Cannibal Corpse, butchered Cattle Decapitation, and buried Six Feet Under, all with a handful of material in their war chest. After having released two EP’s since 2014, Perpetual Descent marks Post Mortal Descent’s first full-length album, and it annihilates any doubts that this Pittsburgh death metal quartet are very much for real and harbor a deep hunger for focused, precise havoc.Tracks such as lead single “Ingesting Sewage,” “Genetically Modified Disease, “Anthrophagi,” and devastating finisher “Architects of Genocide,” demonstrate not only a level of musical virtuosity seemingly borne of a computer-like intelligence but also a bloodthirsty intellectualism through their lyrics that many acts in their niche lack. Post Mortal Possession have something to say beneath the gore, and they want you to chew or choke on it.

Imagine the brute force of a band such as Vader combined with the science of Rings of Saturn and the esoteric wrath of Nile. Or need we imagine?

Perpetual Descent falls from
the skies November 17th. I have felt and witnessed its power. Consider this a warning.

FAM is a Pittsburgh, PA based music media company that’s all about the personal, emotional and social experience of music. The internet is awesome for finding music – living it is better! We’re bringing you professional photos from shows, articles, videos and more to remind you that your weekend doesn’t have to be spent here in the virtual world but with people who have at least one thing in common with you – a shared taste for music. Music media has been done before, but we flipped the script and concentrate on the stuff you haven’t seen yet – the local and regional bands that aren’t just a name on a billboard and a face on a stage. You’re probably still going to find some national level stuff happening around the Pittsburgh area but that’s because when they come to town, they’re part of our family… and once upon a time they were a local band from somewhere.
