One of the underground’s best-kept secrets, SACROCURSE have been sticking to their nuclear-powered guns since 2012. The band, which has spanned continents in the past, is led by scene veteran ZK, who began his prolific career in Mexico’s Unholier in the early ‘90s and has played in such south-of-the-border bands as Nodens & morbosidad and has recently joined Russia’s Pseudogod on tour session bass player. However, it is SACROCURSE where ZK has made his name in recent years, and the band have delivered two foul full-lengths of warring black/death that retain the rich lifeblood of quintessential South American madness.
Supreme Terror is a quick-hitting four-song/17-minute warhead of that madness, and it’s arguably this short-length format where SACROCURSE most excel. Armed with a production that’s cutting ‘n’ clear yet ripping with a razorbladed rawness all the same, Supreme Terror lives up to its title and then some, with one martial torrent after another tearing apart the helpless listener. But let it be known that SACROCURSE drink deeply the black blood of METAL, and never forget the importance of actual songwriting; while Supreme Terror is no doubt unhinged and urgent, chaos never overtakes proceedings, and ZK’s barbed-wire throat and guitar give the record a strident simplicity of design that one could actually qualify as “catchy.” Still, no safe spaces here – only ugliness, and unremittingly so!
