Fol­low­ing on from some bands half their age ini­tially makes

BRO­KEN HOPE [7] seem a bit turgid, but as their grim death metal slowly builds and seeps into lis­ten­ers’ minds, the Chicago vet­er­ans de­liver on both new and old ragers alike. Even by their stan­dards CAT­TLE DE­CAP­I­TA­TION’S

[9] set tonight is an all-con­sum­ing sonic vi­o­la­tion. In pos­ses­sion of the most uniquely un­set­tling voice in metal, Travis ryan con­torts his face and vo­cal cords into all man­ner of griev­ous forms to match the mael­strom be­hind that threat­ens to come apart at the seams. With ma­te­rial solely from their three most re­cent releases it’s an in­tel­li­gent as well as in­tense ex­pe­ri­ence, with the epilepsy-in­duc­ing We Are Hor­ri­ble Peo­ple meet­ing the trippy Pa­cific Grim. The crowd revel in the sweaty cli­mate, with the band’s top­i­cal chants and ryan’s cheeky in­ter­ac­tions the only things sav­ing your mind be­ing ground up and spat back out ready for the sadis­tic grav­i­tas of King­dom Of Tyrants. re­pug­nant yet riv­et­ing.
