splatter_opa I have a hard time thinking of a death metal band that sounds alike to Scolopendra, they have a truly unique sound. They manage to sound completely rancid without being LoFi. Mi piace! Favorite track: Priest's Blood Soup.

bcb723 Blood stained, weird ass death metal. Infused by Italian horror, this is quite the treat with winner of the year for best song titles across the board to consistently demonstrate a theme: "Tormenting Dying Nuns","Priest's Blood Soup", etc. This was one album I almost missed this year and let slip through the cracks but am glad I found. It's like being inside the end of some twisted horror movie. And you can't stop the bloodshed. So you listen, watch and wait for your turn. I loved every second.

PitViper177 I can’t love this album and band enough. Undead Warriors from the Gore capital of the world: Italy. This is like every Fulci film and horror “fumetti” combined with a degree from the university of Necrophagia, old school Black Metal, Death Metal and Thrash. Incredible riffing that never gets boring with gravel throated vocals vomiting it’s spite filled blood all over them. Hail Scolopendra and Hail NWN for putting out this gem of death! Favorite track: The Smell of Cadavers.

With a history of metal steeped in horror and the occult - as previously established by bands like Death SS, Black Hole, and Mortuary Drape - Italy has proven itself a fertile breeding ground for extreme music that explores these themes. Formed in 2018, Scolopendra is the latest to continue in this tradition, as evidenced on its debut album, “Those of the Catacombs.” Unlike its Italian ancestors, however, who have more typically opted for the sounds of doom or black metal, the vehicle that Scolopendra has chosen to deliver its horror-tinged themes is that of death metal. This aspect adds an element to the band’s output that distinguishes itself from its predecessors, thus making it a unique addition to its genre. Consisting of two members with a history of many years of collaboration in several bands, including Abhor, Scolopendra boasts both the pedigree and chemistry to give “Those of the Catacombs” the deathly authenticity that is obvious upon first listen.
