Distorted Sound

One of the key things that turns Endless Wounds from a great record to an exemplary one is the excellent production on here, which gives the whole album a sepulchral, murky feel that adds to the claustrophobic, discordant sound of the record.

The Needle Drop

Black Curse displays great foundational elements on its debut album, but also runs short on ideas.


A Solid debut by the band and i love that they draw from war metal a genre which only a fun bands have fully touched just wish they went further with it because it could of been a great war metal record.

I particularly liked the slow parts in the songs, I think the band performs them with great mastery, besides I don't know what to say, maybe I'm a little saturated with Death, it doesn't hit me that much. In question, the duration I think is perfect for the genre, which makes me satisfied.


My introduction to Black Curse was through Lifeless Sanctum, an instrumental (except for the whispers that permeate the track), so I was happy when I found out the rest of the album was supported by a great vocal performance.
The echo effect on the vocal make for a haunting delivery which makes the record feel cavernous in a way. The vocal effects used on Entraptured by Decay that appear before the bass line emerges, produced as some form of sonic whisper are great, and the vocals used towards ... read more
