GROTESQUE CEREMONIUM "Demonic Inquisition"

https://thirdeyecinema.wordpress.com/

Turkish black-death. Yeah, not something you hear very often. Promo materials namecheck Incantation, and thats definitely a valid touchpoint. Apparently theyd previously released some tape-only material through a Mexican label, and that holds as well: think Castleumbra. As those may suggest, this is detuned but still listenable morbid inclined death metal with nigh-Demilich bowel-level vomit vocals. What you probably wont pick up is that this is apparently another one man band, with a certain Batu Cetin handling all duties. The music doesnt really go anywhere, though Cetin displays a respectable degree of competence on all fronts which you can pick up from all the stop-starts, double bass drumming and switching between Exodus-lite chunka chunka riffing and weird atonal tremelo meanderings on the guitar. That said, its reasonably well recorded and you can hear everything thats going on, whether guitar, drums or vocals, and I appreciated the vocals and the more chugging death metal riffs on display herein.

GROTESQUE CEREMONIUM "Demonic Inquisition"

This one-man band from Turkey is surprisingly good, especially with its powerful, thunderous sound. Something that could be explained by Batu ?etin having many years of experience, as well as two other one-man bands in various adjacent genres. The music is infuriated death metal with enough details to create sufficient friction between the ears, but not enough to stand out in particular. Allow me to be brief. Batu does a great job with instrumentation and demonic cellar-vocals, and even present a concept of inverted inquisition. This time it is the Christians who goes through the mill in the uttermost diabolical torture chamber. Its a rumbling, resounding clamour, and it is devilishly tough. Not ace, perhaps, but more than fine. Only problem is, theres too much close to identical death metal flying around already, and so I do not see the need for Demonic Inquisition. If you are an above average death-monger, I am confident you will revel in Grotesque Ceremonium. Whether you will feel that the album offers anything new is a different matter.

Original founder of Grotesque Ceremonium is Batu Cetin. He is the only person that has an effect for a final outcome of every production he does in his home studio which is where this album has been recorded. I am not going to give it any advantage just because it is one-man band. Simply because a good music is a first motive that drives me to experience music territories, carelessly where or whom it comes from and how many people are involved in. Artwork and song titles says well know stories of Dark Ages and follows evil and weak acts caused by stupid religious people back then and nowadays. Batu Cetin made this album sounds raw and abyssic. I guess it supposed to catch the vibe of old school sounding death metal albums and it does a bit actually but musically it is just so badly primitive and rusty. It does not show much spirit in the songs and musicianship is just on acceptable level which mostly results in boring and amateur songs. Cover of Incantation does not make any difference to me. I do not dislike this album. It`s decent. I just like when there is a certain amount of discipline and pressure put on performance of old school death metal which bands like Immolation, Lost Soul, Sinister do really best. G.C is rather like none of those but you might like it eventually if you like a dead death metal whore fucked by the whole town and baby bastard is obsolete and demonic.

A guy named Batu Çetin from Ankara, Turkey, enjoys doing his own band alone and, not so surprisingly, Death Metal is what he enjoys and loves as you can infer from the bands name. Influence-wise he loves Johnstowns own Death Metal heroes, Incantation, and perhaps even too much I think. I mean, Demonic Inquisition sounds a lot like Incantations early demos meet Onward to Golgotha, Incantations highly praised debut album. His Incantation worship is almost obsessive; the riffs, the drum work, everything and the fact that Batu sounds very much like Craig Pillard with his gut-wrenching death growls, Grotesque Ceremonium easily earns the title of the best early Incantation clone act in this world.

GROTESQUE CEREMONIUM "Demonic Inquisition"

Batu Cetin is a busy man. While I do not know too many Metal groups from Turkey Batu is the founder of Cenotaph which as far as I can judge is one of the better known ones. Although playing in some other bands as well he took the time to create the project Grotesque Ceremony and record the debut Demonic Inquisition. While Cenotaph are a Brutal Tech Death Metal band Batu has chosen to go a different route with Grotesque Ceremony. This is still some brutal and heavy shit but although there is also some technical prowess on display here Demonic Inquisition is cut from a different cloth. What we have here is some absolutely putrid and filthy Old School Death Metal that has been buried long ago in a rotten grave and has been exhumed decades later. The sound is as dirty and brooding as it can be and that might not be to everybodys taste. From the first track Defiled Spirits Of Unholy Torments buzzing guitars are crawling through the speakers. Most of the tracks are held in mid-tempo or even slower making the whole record feel viscid and quirky. There are only a few sections where things get a bit faster just to get back to the speed of a crawling corpse again. It has to be given credit to Batu that the album does not get boring over the running time of 42 minutes despite the relative lack of tempo changes. He is a veteran knowing how to keep things fresh by adding small twists and surprises in the songwriting department. Batu has done everything by himself here. He has been responsible for the whole instrumentation as well as for the vocals. Speaking of which without the snarling tones using at Cenotaph he sounds even more evil constantly roaring like an ancient beast. Generally speaking I am a sucker for albums that have a stringent overall concept. This surely is the case here: From the Old School production sound to the black-white cover artwork and the lyrics this is just an atmospheric an dark little piece of art. I for one hope that Batu will find time to record a follow-up rather sooner than later.
