Full of Hell – Trumpeting Ectascy

This is an album that achieves gorgeous grind darkness in twenty three minutes.

Full of Hell over the last few years have been carving themselves a name in the underground music scene. But now thanks to high profile tours with the likes of Cavalera Conspiracy (Max Cavalera is a long time fan of the band), Converge, The Body and Entombed A.D, splits and collaborations with Nails, The Body and Merzbow and appearances at festivals like Roadburn, their profile has skyrocketed. Fast forward to 2017 and the band have been making waves again with the release of their latest release, Trumpeting Ecstasy. 

Trumpeting Ecstasy after one listen has cemented itself as one of the highs of Full of Hell’s illustrious career, for me at least. What the band have created is a filthy, aggressive grind album whose songs will be stage-dived to for years to come. From the Werner Herzog sample at the beginning of the album, to the end breakdown of ‘At The Cauldron’s Bottom’, this is an album that is constantly gnawing the eardrums, ripping them apart from the inside. This is simply relentless, a dark journey into the abyss while being pelted with fireballs. The vocals, samples and riffs scream pure malice and aggression, this is not a release for the fainthearted. For some, the album may be too short, but Full of Hell know a quick attack is sometimes the best one and play to this strength. Finale ‘At The Cauldron’s Bottom’ is a heart-stopping end to the album. The six-minute rager is an outstanding piece of work, and as the marching drums faded, it dawned on me how great this band really are.

This is an album that achieves gorgeous grind darkness in twenty three minutes. If you have not acquainted yourself with Full of Hell, now is the time to do so.

About Jack (874 Articles)
I am a recent graduate from the University of Essex in Colchester where by the luck of Odin I met the editor, Dom. I first got into metal when I was 13 and now I am 22 and own an uncountable amount of band T-shirts. I also regularly attend gigs (local and in neighbouring areas) as well as festivals. My musical taste is varied; I like nu metal (my first love), thrash, black, death, doom, folk, sludge (my favourite genre), symphonic and many more of the multiple genres that metal has to offer, I even like some metalcore (I know it's a dirty word within some metal circles but some of it is outstanding). One of my most memorable metal moments was meeting Grand Magus at the Bloodstock signing tent and having the whole tent to myself, spending a few minutes talking to them.
