SLAUGHTBBATH have kept quiet since their last album "Hail to Fire, studiously brewing the firestorm that is Alchemical Warfare. A consolidation of the band's beyond-considerable strengths as well as an extension of them, Alchemical Warfare was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Pablo Clares at DM6 studio in Santiago, Chile during 2017/2018. Here, SLAUGHTBBATH are at the peak of their powers, pulsing with both bestiality and burliness alike, and yet exhibiting a nuanced songwriting nous that is second to none. Their sulfurous maelstrom is a veritable meat-grinder of South American darkness lo these past four decades, both reverent of the past whilst forging an even-darker future, and Alchemical Warfare finds the band hitting a fever pitch, its nine-song/36-minute runtime both succinct and satisfying. Each track invokes utter possession - a hypnotic diabolism, perhaps, in spite of the often-frantic tempos - but SLAUGHTBBATH possess the prolific experience to convey that diabolism in a dynamic manner. If anything, Alchemical Warfare is the band's best-produced record to date, and a survey of its song titles suitably convey the occultic austerity within: the title track, naturally, as well as the closing trifecta of "Amulets of Carnage," "Celestial Overthrow," and "Ascension to the Dragon's Throne," as well as the ever-epic "Rejoined Into Chaos."
