On "Typhomanteia: Sacred Triarchy of Spiritual Putrefaction", Venezuela's blackened raw death-doom abomination Cthonica summon a slithering scourge of pestilent and blood-curdling extreme metal barbarism rarely before fathomed at a state this inhuman, repulsive, and horrific. Converging somewhere in the middle between the agonizing and pummeling doomed death metal of early Incantation and Immolation and the twisted and serpentine blackened chaos of bands like Beherit, Blasphemy, and Portal, Cthonica have then crawled beyond their influences and any threshold of familiarity by adding layers of decaying noise and sepulchral dark ambient to their abhorrent extreme metal creation, as well as subduing to deranged religious and occult philosophical notions to transcend into the quintessence embodiment of all ritualistic aural abominations. The conceptual alchemies along with the decomposing atmospheric mantras added to their pummeling raw black/death framework have yielded a lengthening of their compositions, causing the music to stretch into a wretched dimension of perverted immateriality. Thorough this abject creation process Cthonica have thus harnessed an absurd realm of sonic disfigurement, where extreme metal is deformed into morbid occult practices and begins to embody deviant liturgic and ritualistic traits, taking the glorification and worship of death and perversion to an entire new realm of conceptual and audial atrocity
