NO CLEAN SINGING
“The piston-driven bludgeoning is persistently merciless but also well-calculated to get your head moving, yet other surprises do lie in wait.”

GAMES, BRRRAAAINS & A HEAD-BANGIN LIFE

”Riffs as thick as three-day-old porridge, bass as sinewy as an Olympic runner’s legs, drums that pound with force and speed, and of course, vocals that sound like guts being hacked up. Combined, all these nasty instruments result in a smash-mouth and aggressive listen with plenty of exciting groove” 7.5/10

NOOB HEAVY

“Orecus has managed to distill many of the past and present trends and influences in the death metal sphere into a tight and coherent whole. The Obliterationist is almost like an expert summary of everything that has happened in death metal for the last 30 years.” 8.5/10

HEADBANGER REVIEWS

THE HEADBANGIN MOOSE

”Orecus offer us fans of extreme music a fantastic fusion of old school and modern-day Death Metal with endless aggression, heaviness and intricacy in The Obliterationist, and let’s hope that their newborn spawn is just the first step in this new phase of their career.” 3.5/10
