Review | BLACK FUCKING CANCER Spreads Malign Wrath on Procreate Inverse

            A malignance is doomed to metastasize in the USA with the imminent release of Procreate Inverse, and it carries the raw hostility from the self-titled debut of BLACK FUCKING CANCER into elevated chaos and savagery. These energies are harnessed to compose plaguelike embodiments that roam across the blackened spectrum, with the genre’s origins asserting contemporary relevance through a primitive thrashing attack, and it integrates sections of bleak entrancement with frenzy for a multifarious display of extremity. Warped and dissonant effects wreak further torment within the mass, along with dismal impressions and other creeping aural encounters, and the madness is driven to detrimental levels when solos emerge. This recurrence of BLACK FUCKING CANCER proves to be terminal, and its dark vitality proliferates as Procreate Inverse eradicates solace with its otherworldly rot.

            A dark esoteric ambience with choral voices surrounds this affliction, and other auras materialize in effects at certain places throughout its havoc. Desecrated ruins glare from the fire and bells on “Serpentious Flames” while ominous tones combine with the desolation from bass lines to launch the title track, and these features are used in a minimal but calculated manner to complement the atmosphere, which is mainly realized through abrasive orchestrated qualities. Bleak and disturbed impressions begin on “Excursus” when tremolo currents gather into hypnotic fluctuating masses, and heavier structures are likewise observed directing an assault through pounding chord formations. This is often matched by the percussive storm, where various berserk complexities unfold within erratic shifts from blast beats to rocking mid-paces, and periods of instrumental overlap compound the chaos as hateful energies are projected from fiendish vocal dynamics. These tactics are executed across the tracks, but “Eradic Hate” is one that also demonstrates how soloing surfaces amid the disorientation to capitalize on its madness.

            A vicious edge also manifests from underlying thrash influences, which “Serpentious Flames” exemplifies in a section of distinctly elevated shapes, and they generate a swinging effect that traverses multiple blast-beaten and grooved rhythms. Accented strikes also carry this vein with sharp and sliding tremolo bursts on “Excursus,” and heightened developments circulate within its frenzied course after synchronizing with the rapid blasting pace. A similar barrage follows in the joint drum and chord pummeling on “Obscene Lusting Dagger,” and it advances with harmonics and pointed fluctuating notes toward a headbang-inducing groove. Its intoxicating potency is sustained with soloing that recurs alongside string distortions to send the mind spiraling into warped dimensions, and it also reveals some of the methodical diversity lying among frequent bombardments. This aspect appears definitively when descending into eeriness on “Procreate Inverse,” where a dismal interlude magnifies the tone of preceding melodies, and their derangement continues through a passage of arpeggiations with other heavy and dissonant forms. The colossal status of this track is asserted with a series of arrangements to engulf the opus in a cumulative pandemonium, and it concludes in tribute on “Krossfyre,” with a renewed power offered to the inspiration from its hellish original.

            The band is known for charging their aural substance with grim lyrical curses, which reek of pestilence and death while also emitting perversity and sacrilege from the infernal rites within, but the included texts have been scribed using symbolism designed to conceal their exact contents. In order to heed this intention, those details will remain confined to the shadows here, and decryption will instead be left for those ambitious ones willing to devote time and effort into uncovering their mysteries.

            BLACK FUCKING CANCER exhibits that distinct spirit which seeks the complete slaughter of all things sacred, and Procreate Inverse seizes a devastating continuation of this wrath through a merging of the band’s signature blackness with first wave and thrash qualities, thus crafting an abomination suited to our modern era. Many fleeting intricacies are discerned within the arrangements as they forge ahead with grinding intensity, and their fury endures across the 55-minute duration without losing an attentive grasp. Notable deviations from the rabidity highlight a variety of malevolent forms, and their grim contortions heighten a menace that prevails alongside soloing and purposeful ambient influences. The scourge of Procreate Inverse will easily cast an imposing shadow throughout this year, and I look forward to repeated ventures and also to the hellstorms BLACK FUCKING CANCER will orchestrate in the times to come.
