• MIASMAL - Tides of omniscience LP
Since forming in 2007, Swedish death metallers MIASMAL have gone from promising upstarts—the group's self-titled debut made underground waves in 2011—to innovative veterans. The Gothenburgers' new album, Tides Of Omniscience, isn't just transformative, it's proof positive that in the confines of death metal there's plenty of room for forward progress without uprooting what the forefathers had in mind. Whereas previous album Cursed Redeemer was hewn from Cthulhu's tentacles and doused in a vat of Sweden's dirtiest swill, MIASMAL’s new album is a revelation of ultra-tight, razor-sharp death. Tides Of Omniscience represents a band on the verge of greatness—both utterly savage yet melodically epic.
