You think you would not have hard time guessing the style of music Putrefact play. Black & white cover art, the moniker itself and the South American/Mexican origin - all things point in the direction of something brutal, intense and raw. These expectations will be largely met by Of Those Who Were Deceased EP, yet the sound on the release is a lot more Swedish, I would say, than South American. Instead of unbridled rawness Putrefact present thick savage guitars on We Were Deceased slipping from time to time into thrashing, racing and headbanging melodies. Imagine Entombed on steroids with a tinny sounding snare drum.

II is slower and quite a bit more occult. The voice is resonating and echoing, the bass-guitars interlude in the middle grabs attention and then the song reaches its pinnacle with a plowing, dense and ominous piece of music dissolving into the ending siren outdo lead. If you like what Kaamos was doing or are a fan of various Rogga Johansson projects, you will find a lot of value with Putrefact. Pulverized has a right ear for this sort of band.

P.S. The band would like to clarify that they are indeed Mexican.
