MB Premiere: SIGN OF EVIL - 'Psychodelic Death' full album stream

After hosting the video premiere for 'Bad Trip', today we are teaming up yet again with Edged Circle Productions / Suicide Records Chile to present the highly anticipated debut album of Chile's SIGN OF EVIL, Psychodelic Death, out May 20th, 2022 on CD and vinyl LP formats.

It was but early 2020 when SIGN OF EVIL burst forth from some Lovecraftian fever dream to release their debut EP, Psychodelic Horror. Hailing from the cult-metal hotbed of Chile, it was no surprise that this then-one-man project of Witchfucker (also of the well-regarded Invocation Spells and Dekapited) bore some semblance of classic South American madness, but there was just as equally as sorts of other madness bubbling in SIGN OF EVIL's cauldron.

And now, Witchfucker's joined by new drummer Thoth, and the duo's chemistry is immediate and mesmerizing. Everything about its short-length predecessor is not only taken up a notch, it's nearly maximized to overkill-type levels, but that's the only kind of madness for SIGN OF EVIL! More chorus pedal on everything, more guitar solos everywhere, more anthems and more hypnosis and more evil and more ARGH!!! In fact, that chorus-pedal abuse puts Psychodelic Death in a realm almost removed from metal and into old deathrock - so sinister yet also so sexy. But rest assured that the duo have their noses planted deeply in an ancient ugliness redolent of early Bathory, Venom, Warfare, and even the Plasmatics: Witchfucker's now got two vocal styles warring with each other - one a thirsty 'n' miserable blackrasp, the other a sewer vomit warped by a harmonizer ala very early Carcass, Impetigo, or Carnage - and Thoth's snare sound is straight outta Sarcofago's INRI. The cultest metal album of the year? YOU FUCKING BET!
