Unholy Conspiracy Deathwork

Album Review By Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio

 

Ichor graces us with his fourth album Hadal Ascending that links thematically with Benthic Horizon and Depths. The German death metal band is Eric (vocals), Daniel (guitar), Jo (guitar), Norb (bass) and Dirk (drums). As described in the promotional package there is a connecting theme: “The fictional story of a devastated and hate-filled deep-sea world full of creatures and mystical beings continues: Human warriors reached the hadal-level in the deep sea and fight a bitter fight against gorgons and creatures of the depths. To implore transcendent energies, rituals are hold during the slaughter. The demon “Zaan” awakes and feeds on the blood of the warriors. He opens the portal to other worlds and as a leader of gorgons and creatures, he leads them through the portal into the empire of stars and planets.”

 

With the prior album Depths, the focus was about mayhem and destruction. In Hadal Ascending there are some promises of hope. Not bad, mixing some sci-fi and metal. The music in and of itself is crushing, a blistering ride into the depths of all that is scared in the genre. “Ascending the March” has this rollicking rhythm with warlike drumming. My choice track is “Conquering the Stars,” beautifully melodic and still exceedingly heavy. Although the death metal market seems to be flooded, Ichor have a certain knack and a close knit musicianship that shines in their rhythms.
