All I can say about this little band from the US, Pennsylvania is wow!! The Chills, the title says it all, each track after another sending a chill down you spine. Created in 2009 Horrendous have defined the kind of morbid and motoring style of Swedish/American seen in a lot of seen from in such bands like Entombed, Nihilist and Internal Decay.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Guitarist/Vocalist Damian Herring at the Subterranean Watchtower Studios with artwork done by Raul Gonzalez who did artwork for bands such as Deceased, Morbus Chron and Atarxy.
Opening with The Womb sets the tone for this album straight away, the eerie sounding guitar riff opening into a fast based beast of guitars, drums and growls. Each kick of the pedal done in non continuous rhythm, as the guitar work from Damian and Jamie shred angrily in over the pounding of the drums. With over beastlike tracks such as the destructive sounding Ripped to shreds, Fleshrot, Altars and Fatal Dreams and the melodic instrumental Sleep Sickness leading up to the nine minute finale epic The Eye Of Madness , Horrendous gives evil a new name and face!!
