REPTILIAN LOGOMuch like Sepulcher’s Mausoleum Tapestry, also on Edged Circle Productions, Reptilian’s Perennial Void Traverse breaks the stereotype of what is expected from Norway when it comes to metal. It is almost like Norway’s underground realized that they are known for the most extreme of metal so they decided to go back a few steps and start making some kick ass thrash albums. Reptilian is a little more on the death metal side of the death thrash genre, but there are a lot of thrash influences.

Reptilian’s Perennial Void Traverse is a perfect melding of thrash and death metal. Reptilian has developed a very obscure death thrash sound, unparallel to any other death thrash outfit I have heard. The album constantly changes tempo, creating a unique atmosphere. The riffs are very death metal and change speed but the solos are fucking outrageous and remind me of thrash. The vocals differentiate between old school death metal, raspy vocals to thrashy, definitely has an obscure feel to it.  The track “Possessed By The Reptilian BandEyes of the Living” is the most distinctively thrash offering on the album, it kicks ass. There is a break in many of the songs and you can tell when there is more of a death metal influence and more of a thrash influence. Instead of melding the two to be heard at the same time, Reptilian distinguishes between the two genres separately, consistently. Much like how Runemagick approached the ideals of Doom Death.

Where most death thrashers fail is that they tend to sound very similar to one another, but how Reptilian presents the genre creates a breath of fresh air for death thrash. This is not an album to miss, there is a lot of originality that creates this album’s unique sound. Check out Reptilian’s Perennial Void Traverse when it is released by Edged Circle Productions on April 22nd.
