Burial in the Sky - Creatio Et Hominus (2018)


Unleashing one of the most inventive and catchy Progressive/Technical Death Metal releases of 2018, today we have Burial in the Sky and their sophomore release “Creatio Et Hominus”. Filled with lush instrumental passages and highly crafty pummeling sections, this release perfectly balances the best of two worlds to deliver seven expertly crafted tracks that will keep you entertained for hours at a time.

Opening with the dreamy jazzy sax of “Nexus”, the band sets a mysterious tone while intoxicating the listener with their atmospheric intro. This peaceful mood quickly changes into growls and crushing drumming with “Tesla”. This track reminds us of a mixture of Cynic and Fallujah, as the moody bass guitar line perfectly contrasts the aggressive guitar riffs and blistering solos. Perfectly dancing between lush atmospheric passages into more technical brutality, the band tiptoes through tracks like “Nautilus’ Cage” and the playful “The Pivotal Flame”.

Our favorite part of the band’s sound is how well they merge lush instrumental passages within aggressive sections to create very well balanced songs that have plenty of tempo changes and brilliant melodic headbanging passages as we can see on “The Pivotal Flame” and “Psalms of the Deviant”. This last track is one of the most aggressive with crushing passages of harsh vocals and mesmerizing instrumentation. Changing up things a bit, “5 Years” delivers some catchy tempo changes and certain Southern-Rock inspired edge, creating a very unique track that is quite enjoyable and different from the rest.

The release closes with the dreamy album-title track which morphs from a Psychedelic Proggy piece into a more complex and intricate composition filled with crazy solos and brilliant drumming onslaughts. Definitely saving the best and most technically proficient track for last, Burial in the Sky sure know how to close a release with a huge bang. Overall, this sophomore release clearly makes a statement from this very young band that should instantly get on your top Tech Death Metal bands list.
