The debut mini-album by the American band Borboropsis which was formed by members of Flesh Warfare, Well Of Night and Moiscus, continues the traditions of diSEMBOWELMENT and Dusk with outstanding talent and perfection. “Decorticated Burial Of Delirium” contains three heaviest atmospheric anthems composed in the uncompromising death doom metal style. Three gravestones, three death cries, three tracks: this is more than enough to be impressed by the grandeur of Borboropsis.

1. Echoed Winds Of Corporeal Derangement
2. Transmute Miseries Of The Solemn Halls
3. Decortication | Delirium

Describing themselves as Dayton Ohio psychward inducing purveyors of Doom infused Death Metal, Borboropsis are a quartet former by members of Flesh Warfare, Well Of Night and Moiscus who cite inspiration from the likes of diSEMBOWELMENT and Dusk. Their debut was recorded, mixed and mastered by Shaun O’Shaughnessy that is accompanied by artwork by Suguru Tanaka with Bridgette Clifton accredited with the bands classically barely readable but instantly recognisable logo.

The raw nature of the recording of this debut offering serves to add to the dirge laden atmospheric crush of the beast as it sounds primitive and cavenous, giving the impression that is was recorded in a sprawling cave structure in the vast, dark depths of hell itself. Curiously that doesn’t overly muddy Max Otworth’s drum sound which remains crisp and clear despite a little reverb on the bass drum during some of the jackhammer footwork. What it does do however is make Nash Walkup’s Death growling low vocals echo around your skull like the summoning of the Demon within, a calling to the void that it takes great strength to resist. Despite its dark rumblings, it is not a release without its fair share of melody and contained with the extended duration of “Transmute Miseries Of The Solemn Halls” are some brilliantly ecclectic acoustic lead parts before a traditional Metal acoustic closing that showcases some impressive picking parts and proves that this band are more than the monolithic beast they claim to be. As well as the aforementioned inspirations there are also some distinctly Black Metal influences in the mix and the slow death of “Decortication | Delirium” is a perpetual agony that takes everything low and slow before building up into a mid section of Blast Beats and a rampaging solo that present divine intervention to the skull crushing depravity. There is an sense of epic grandeur to the latter half of the track that is a surprise given its monstrous opening and the finale that sounds like a Harp is the most Avant-garde moment by far. A Trojan horse of a release, this isn’t for the faint hearted

Borboropsis es una banda que acaba de irrumpir en la escena de metal estos tipos traen una mezcla de Death Metal con Doom Metal y hacen su presentación por medio de un EP el cual tiene su banderazo de salida el próximo viernes 20 de agosto este material lleva por nombre Decorticated Burial Of Delirium.

Este EP está compuesto por 3 canciones y nos da una duración de 24 minutos este material es independiente de momento. Borboropsis está conformado por Nash Walkup - Guitarra y voz, Max Otworth - Batería, Adam Witmer - Guitarra y Cole Shirley a cargo del Bajo.

Esta entrega tiene canciones muy extensas con esto me refiero a que dos de estas pistas están arriba de los 8 minutos pero estas pasan en un abrir y cerrar de ojos, este EP comienza con “Echoed Winds Of Corporeal Derangement” la cual se ve desarrollando de manera lenta una interpretación sensacional de lo que es el Doom pero aunque hay momentos en que puedo decir que suenan más a un black atmosférico. “Transmute Miseries Of The Solemn Halls” inicia con una fuerza desmedida todo lo contrario al tema anterior, los riffs son agresivos un pieza que nos muestras más detalles de death metal, las guturales hay momentos en los cuales no se entienden, el doble pedal llega de manera salvaje pero posteriormente se crea una atmósfera densa ya que los riffs ahora son más lentos y oscuros el cierre de esta pieza son unos acordes acústicos muy agradables.

La pieza final es “Decortication/Delirium” la cual es la más extensa de esta entrega con más de 10 minutos de duración un tema que se va desarrollando de manera lenta creando de nuevo un atmósfera que trata de envolverte en la pieza. Borboropsis se presenta de una buena forma haciendo una trabajo con una mezcla de géneros muy llamativa, un álbum recomendable de escuchar.

Released earlier this year by the band and now exhumed by Solitude Productions, Decorticated Burial Of Delirium is a harrowing example of how to mould death, doom and funeral doom into a congealed morass of tormented anguish and unbearable agony. Sounding like the offspring of a hellish triumvirate of dISEMBOWELMENT, Dusk and Worship, there is a choking atmosphere of foul odour and poisonous foreboding, where only the condemned and the damned can enter the gate to the final track Decortication/Delirium and pass beyond, head bowed, shoulders slumped, all joy and hope abandoned.

This is the debut EP from US death/doom metal band Borboropsis.

This release offers up 24 minutes of atmospheric heaviness that holds a lot of promise for the future. The music combines cavernous old-school death metal with mood-focused slabs of doom, and it does this exceptionally well. Imagine a combination of Morbid Angel and Immolation, then slow it down and draw out the malevolent atmosphere, and you’ll have an idea of what Borboropsis have created here.

There are some very good riffs on these songs. These choice cuts seem to slither menacingly across the airwaves with dark intent. These are combined with more nuanced and intricate guitar parts that contribute massively to the feeling of atmospheric dread that swamp these songs like a foul miasma. Malignant melody occasionally rises out of this murk with otherworldly potency. The death-to-doom ratio is well-judged, and Borboropsis make use of a few different paces and ideas across the songs. All of the three tracks are well-written, and the band have a clear talent for this sort of music.

Decorticated Burial of Delirium is a very enjoyable and impressive first release from Borboropsis. If they’re this good already, I honestly can’t wait to find out what the band have in store for us in the future.

Ones to watch for sure.
Raben Report

Ein drückend sowie arg finsteres Stück Musik haben Borbororopsis erschaffen, die mit dem vorliegenden Ding dem Funeral Doom verfallen sind, der zwar sicherlich teils recht zäh serviert wird, anderseits aber auch agile Parts bereithält. Die tiefgestimmten Gitarren werden von einer druckvollen Produktion unterstützt und die Umsetzung jener Stilistik gemahnt dabei hin und wieder an die göttlichen Disembowelment. Neben Funeral Doom sind ebenso Elemente aus dem Death Metal vorzufinden, was "Decorticated Burial Of Delirium" zudem eine ordentliche Portion an Lebendigkeit verleiht. Gut so, denn auf permanente Zeitlupe hab ich gerade gar keinen Bock. Schwere Riffpassagen türmen sich da ihren Weg auf dem Erstling der Band, die sich übrigens aus Mitgliedern von Flesh Warfare, Well Of Night und Moiscus zusammen setzt. Keine Frischlinge sind somit am Start, wobei man dies Borboropsis aber auch anmerkt. "Decorticated Burial Of Delirium" setzt zudem auf überraschende Breaks und teils dissonante Melodieführung, weshalb zum Beispiel ein "Transmute Miseries Of The Solemn Halls" schon recht nahe an genannte Disembowelment kommt. Lediglich drei Vertonungen sind hier begraben wurden, die aber völlig ausreichen, um das Gemüt zu verdunkeln, weshalb es im Grunde genommen auch gar nicht so schlecht kommt, keine Überlänge präsentiert zu bekommen.

Mittlerweile gibt es einige Bands, die an dem Vermächtnis von Disembowelment knappern. Borboropsis sind ein guter Vertreter ihrer Art und haben fraglos eine Menge an Potenzial inne. Man wird sehen, wohin die Reise geht, der Truppe steht diesbezüglich noch jeder Weg offen. Für ein Debüt ist "Decorticated Burial Of Delirium" jedenfalls eine runde Sache.
