Album Review: Vomit Forth - Seething Malevolence
Reviewed by Daniel Phipps

Off the back of a series of demos which formed Vomit Forth’s 2017 release on Maggot Stomp the Connecticut band inked a deal with Century Media for the release of their full length debut. Titled Seething Malevolence it sees the band look to offer a collection of tracks which will make people firmly re-look at and re-evaluate what to expect from modern death metal.

If I were being lazy, Seething Malevolence could simply be described as very East Coast sounding death metal, and judging by its opening track “Eucharist Intact” it’s not an unfair statement. The track which has serious amounts of brutality combined with thick grooves which stinks of a throwback to NY legends Internal Bleeding and Dehumanized in spectacular fashion. Tracks like 'Unrecognisable' and 'I Feel Nothing' see the Connecticut band at their most intense with it being the furious riffs found on 'Unrecognisable' or the harrowing brutal vocals of 'I Feel Nothing'.

Album Review: Vomit Forth – Seething Malevolence

What I found enjoyable was how Vomit Forth are able to tow the line with their brutal death metal sound and the blatant hardcore elements within the tracks and you get the vibes of bands like Sworn Enemy and fellow Connecticut residents Hatebreed all through the album both in attitude andsome of the sheer violent pit storming sections during the album. The drums on Seething Malevolence offer a real backbone to the tracks and give the record a real punch, and the groove riffs really play well with the drum sound. Adding to the sound of this record Vomit Forth have collaborated with US noise-monger Prurient along with using some harsh atmospheric noise during parts of the record adding that experimental edge but not too experimental to deviate from the bands style.

Vomit Forth delivers a great slab of old school groove filled brutality. With the old school sound being very much hyped up seeing bands offering that more brutal edge of old school death metal is extremely welcome. Definitely a record which will be on regular rotation for a lot of death metal fans throughout the rest of 2022 and beyond.
