For nearly a decade now, Chicago’s Hellfire Deathcult have doggedly pursued an uncompromising and fiercely focused vision of blackgrind. From their debut EP, 2014’s Ave Mors – which Helter Skelter reissued in late 2018 – on to two full-lengths as well as prolific assaults on the live front, this power-trio have proven dependable and DEADLY. Theirs is a world-eating sound, and hypnotically so, whose bulldozing physicality recalls classic Archgoat, Goatpenis, Black Witchery, and Morbosidad but with a punishing persona all their own.
Nearly four years on from their last full-length, Hellfire Deathcult return to an ever-cursed world with their third album, Al Nombre de la Muerte. Immediately, the gutted blackgrind is recognizably Hellfire Deathcult – primitive, primordial, powerful – and is encased in a sweltering production that skillfully highlights all the nuance and nous of this uncompromising, unmerciful sound. However, scratch deeper below the barbed-wire surface and one will find that they’ve subtly perfected the art of catchiness across Al Nombre de la Muerte: anchored by gnawing & clawing riffs with a nuclear fuckton of bottom end, Hellfire Deathcult almost effortlessly dole out hummable hymns – but of course, ones that authentically breathe the blackest essence of this arcane art, all through a grimy gasmask. So, while their aesthetic foundation remains firm, with this new record Hellfire Deathcult challenges to be included in that (black)list of (un)hallowed names.
