Few bands working within this subgenre have so successfully delivered such aggressive and violent onslaughts and few have remained so faithful to the blueprints established by Blasphemy, Beherit, Impurity, Sarcofago, etc. This is not a “retro” band, however. These releases easily stand alongside the classics produced by those masters. Among the seemingly endless tide of Bestial Black Death bands released each month, few can be as favorably compared to the pregenitors of the genre. Proclamation is one of the few that can. Perhaps this is because Proclamation has studied the masters so thoroughly and refuses to be influenced by anything other than the unholiest of bestial black metal. You will hear no heavy metal influence. ..no norsecore…no funthrash…instead you will be thoroughly assaulted by chaotic riffs, morbid intros, searingly violent guitar solos, and blasphemous vocals from beyond that will rape and devour your soul. Released in conspiracy with Ross Bay Cult.

Hidden History of the Human Race justifies the degree of eager anticipation for its release. More than the product of a novelty act, or a complex genre tag such as old-school technical atmospheric death metal, the band's music on Hidden History...is technically-challenging, dissonant, and memorable for its song-writing magic! Fave album of 2019! Alaric Cabiling

Utter savagery spewed forth with deadly precision.
This release stands out from earlier work (and others in the genre) in that it sounds much more full and punishing. The tone is refined without sacrificing raw energy.
If you enjoy passing idle time by envisioning yourself as a violent malformed entity ripping through undulating masses of burning flesh and bone - it doesn't get much better than this. Swigen
