Forging the brutal, technical and dissonant death metal styles, Dischordia have created a triumvirate of evolved and complicated death metal which will require the unspooling of brains to fully decipher it. It may have to be soaked overnight or given as much time with it too, for indeed, to absorb such an imposing mass of music, multiple listens particularly with the aid of headphones to help dissect it are mandatory. Every song on the album offers something unique; what’s peculiar are the unconventional interludes of all kinds giving the listener some strange form of respite, lest the brains explode, which are both calming and unsettling, always preparing you for the invariable climax. Every song is a triumph. Each offers its own reward. There’s so much happening at all times, it would probably feel too claustrophobic if it weren’t for the brilliant mixing and mastering work done by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Replicant), ensuring clarity without sacrificing Dischordia’s brain-liquefying heaviness. Unpredictable, almost narrative structuring, brings out the best performances from the members, each of whom is trying to attain a whole new level. And even with the interludes and various unique instruments being brought into play, the sound remains largely cohesive and impactful. All in all, this is a masterwork where music of this kind goes. It sets new standards in extremity with bold, thoughtful application and ferocious execution.
