OF FEATHER AND BONE spreads their virulent strain of enigmatic death metal on Bestial Hymns Of Perversion. Recorded at Goldberg Studios with Steve Goldberg (Cephalic Carnage) at the helm, bassist/vocalist AS and guitarist/vocalist DG herald the endtimes with a dual guttural onslaught atop an ever-flowing stream of grime-caked riffs and PW’s whirlwind of blasts and d-beats. Invoking the claustrophobia of Autopsy and the visceral disgust of Incantation and Bolt Thrower, OF FEATHER AND BONE‘s relentless death assault serves as the soundtrack to mankind’s fall. The resulting album delivers a tumultuous salvo of blasting death metal; a more than thirty-two-minute exploration of the genre’s most vile tactics. Mastered by Dan Lowndes at Resonance Sound, and featuring stunning cover art courtesy of Stefan Todorovic, Bestial Hymns Of Perversion‘s seven tracks of unrelenting death metal portend the destruction of the modern age.
Revolver Magazine offered in part, “There is subtlety at work to the band’s destruction… as the band melds in grooves and slow downs that keep one on their toes. It’s chaos, but carefully architect for maximum ruin.” Noisey’s feature on OF FEATHER AND BONE included, “The band stripped away its frantic, d-beat-driven bursts of aggression in favor of a cavernous death assault that harkens back to Incantation, Autopsy, and early Cannibal Corpse. While cynics might question the seemingly radical stylistic shift, the band explains that finding their authentic sound was an organic process that was necessary for the group’s continued existence.”
Exclaim! Magazine’s 9/10 review proclaimed the album, “is as tight as it is dangerous. One would be hard pressed to find a spot of weakness in time before OFAB gutted you and desecrated the corpse. Like sadistic architects, OFAB craft a foundation of blast beats and chugging guitars that binds the whole album, while retaining an aura of danger through sudden turns taken in songwriting that keeps Bestial Hymns… from ever becoming stale and just another Bolt Thrower or Incantation clone.” No Clean Singing posted, “Its nice to know that if there were any metric of measurement for heaviness in this post, Denver, Colorado’s OF FEATHER AND BONE would have us covered in tipping that scale into the darkest realms of death metal… fully enveloped in murk and grime, ambulatory yet melting as it shambles its way towards the listener, disgustingly blast-heavy and so purposefully low that the song probably registers on some Richter scales as a movement of land mass.”
