PannionSeer Queasy and reverb-shrouded ooze gurgles and squirts in the subtle layers beneath the fray, giving this a deranged fun house vibe that begs for headphone listening. I'm usually not a big tech death guy but the slimy production and blood-spattered psychedelia make this so much more than the sum of its parts.

Andrew Malpass I agree with my bandcamp buddy Pannion.

This is a trip. totally great thrashy weird death with some really good use of synths.

The songs all have a groove and a flow which is usually absent in tech adjacent metal.

Expecting this to be one I return to often.

about

BLOOD HARVEST RECORDS is proud to present UNIVERSALLY ESTRANGED’s striking debut album, Reared Up in Spectral Predation, on CD, cassette and vinyl LP.

One of the most exciting new hordes BLOOD HARVEST has come across in recent years, UNIVERSALLY ESTRANGED specialize in sci-fi-drenched death metal of a most malign and mesmerizing order. The band’s public debut, Reared Up in Spectral Predation tells its story with its psychedelically vivid song titles. “Despoiling Souls of Flesh Across the Galaxy.” “A Thing, Oozing In.” “Sentient Meatsack.” “Teeming With That of Unknown Origin.” “Blistered Under the Blue Illusion.” Or, perhaps most vividly, the Technicolor eye-gouge of the album’s cover artwork itself. Still, all this is only half the story…

With almost alarming fluidity, UNIVERSALLY ESTRANGED here create a sort of death metal that’s both cosmically levitational and grossly subterranean. Its throb is thunderous, literally earthquaking, but reveals reverberating echoes across space and time; the riffs are RIFFS, but also striker weirder and wilder than most Death Metal Riffs; an undercurrent of synths or synth-like sounds or not synths at all coil and uncoil and recoil and re-uncoil with a regularity that’s random and structured simultaneously; and the songwriting, as a whole, ably bridges down-tempo ooze and slipstream speed alike, with equal emphasis on mangling the mind and lodging deeply within it. Put another way, Reared Up in Spectral Predation is a portal to infinite possibilities, but also an end destination – too frightening and fantastic to behold. The only option is to don one’s best spacesuit and plunge right in…or upward.

With no hyperbole intended, BLOOD HARVEST hereby declares UNIVERSALLY ESTRANGED’s Reared Up in Spectral Predation as the tech-death debut of the year. Blow your mind and your ass will follow!
