——————————————————–

Satanic black metal as the band generalize themselves,they have a lot of blazing riffs and thunderous drums in their arsenal. Their lyrics usually revolve around dark themes like misanthropy,blasphemy and Satanism.Hence,the name Dark Desolation. Hailing from the pits of Bangalore,India; a country highly contagious to Bollywood with a hell lot of dancing under trees and waterfalls,these five piece assault surely leaves you surprised with their musical maturity. Their influences can easily be traced back to the likes of pure blend of black metal bands like Dark Funeral,Marduk and others.

For those allowing to give them a chance, the album surely leaves you hooked with their walls of surging riffs, clinically devastating percussion and dark yet hooky choruses. The drums surely batter the brain from all sides with guitar riffs cutting the nerves like fine lasers.

‘Insectuous Catacombs’ starts off with a bombastic approach gloomily filling between creativity and brutality. ‘Catechetical Somniloquence’ and ‘Dark Desolation’ follows the torment after continuing the sonic nihilism. ‘Futile Dogma’ is another dynamite in the album. Vocalist ‘Maggot’ never fail to deliver the purely raw black vocals anytime.  In short, ‘Blasphemous Pestilence’ is a couple of songs and unludicrous amount of talent unleashed in the studio. ‘Secrets of the black arts’, a cover from Dark Funeral surely is a treat.
