Caecus – ‘Affliction’ 7″ EP
CAECUS Affliction, their debut EP on 7″ vinyl. Formed in the winter of 2013 by GM, AC, and TW, the aim of CAECUS is to create furious black/death metal with no compromise and no quarter given. The band soon yielded a handful of short, uncluttered songs, consisting of rapid-fire blastbeats, brutal-but-intricate guitar work, and cavernous, soul-devouring vocals. The lyrics across Affliction are centered around a morbid fascination with the frailty of the human condition, binding the lyrical themes with the darkness of the band’s music. Across its three burly, belligerent track, the ‘Affliction’ EP serves as a concise opening statement of CAECUS’ ongoing exploration of the macabre and unsavory. (Nathan T. Birk)
