Jono Schneider Incredibly heavy and full of endless sick riffs and cool ideas. But just so heavy.

Darknight Apexapien just happens to be one of the best releases I've heard this year, the song writing is astounding, I can feel every riff soaring through my bones. Cleverly created the dissonant darkened death metal version that only this band could create, four talented dudes making sure that this record really stands out and by hell it really stands out like a shining light scorching out from hell. Favorite track: Open The Effigy.

Ronnie Lacey That "Where the Slime Lives" vocal effect at the end of Hymn Of The Flies is absolutely filthy. This is top 5 of 21 material. Favorite track: Hymn Of The Flies.

about

Canada has long been a wellspring from which fierce technical brutality has continuously flowed. In that tradition Atræ Bilis offer the imminent predatory attack of ‘Apexapien’, their debut full length offering and one poised to set them on a path of unfettered exploration and intensity.

Like many bands on the 20 Buck Spin roster Atræ Bilis take elements of several metallic sub-genres and twist them together into a distinctive alloy greater then sum of its parts. On ‘Apexapien’ angular blackened dissonance, exhilarating experimental progressivism and crushing guttural savagery merge into a cacophony of violently discordant Death Metal; all held together with a strict focus, discipline and astonishing percussive momentum.

Thoroughly modern in scope and mercilessly severe in execution, the heinous battering inflicted on ‘Apexapien’ establishes Atræ Bilis at the vanguard of a new breed of forward looking Death Metal bands not content to simply pay tribute to or completely abandon the genre’s towering progenitors.
