Song Premiere: Killibrium’s “Denominator”

Wednesday, 31st January 2018

Always in search of yet another death metal rush, we at Dead Rhetoric have paired up with India’s Killibrium to give you a taste of their upcoming release, Purge, out independently on March 5, 2018. Below you may check out the lyric video for the track “Denominator.” If you like what you hear, you can check out the band’s Bandcamp page (link below) and order a copy of Purge.

As for “Denominator,” it’s a bit of a slow burner to start – building up the necessary darkness with a sense of foreboding before they decide to annihilate everything in their path. Blast beats and fierce growls soon become commonplace in the landscape, along with slightly blackened/technical riffing and subtle melodies. An addictive and groovy main riff is the focal point for the track, one that’s sure to get your body moving with the first listen. They display a great sense of balance overall, with brutality and mood walking hand-in-hand from beginning to end. If this is any indication of the rest of Purge, you can expect a whopper of a release.

Band description:
India’s most exciting new death metal band Killibrium have announced their debut release and it’s every bit worth the long wait. They have found a brilliant balance between old school and the modern, technical and brutal death metal. It’s catchy and at the same time engrossing. Artwork duties have been handled by none other than Michal “Xaay” Loranc (Pestilence, Nile, Schammasch) and the production too is impeccable, with everything sounding powerful and clear. Killibrium are touted as the next big band in India and going by the material on hand here, there is very litle doubt about that.
