Deuil – Acceptance / Rebuild

Deuil – Acceptance / Rebuild
Self-Released - 2013
Drone, Sludge
Rated: **

Today’s album is comprised of two lengthy tracks of 20 and 10 minutes, respectively.  The first of these, “Acceptance” is a bit all over the place.  From slow, swaying Moss-like doom to blackened face ripping intensity, guttural incantations to indecipherable clips, “Acceptance” lights up various parts of the brain but always in the pursuit of pulverization.  Deuil like to be thorough.  Their name means ‘mourning’ so “Rebuild” sounds like something of a signature track.  It kicks off in a somber mood, traversing ruined terrain full of gutted hopes, smashed bodies and wasted lives, a world shattered during the opening song.  The band spelunk in the caves of post-metal then emerge on a rampage.  At times they’re a whirlwind of teeth and claws, at others their slow riffs churn a relentless gangland beat down of heavy.  With this band, it’s a heaviness that goes way beyond low-end distortion.  The vocals are of the worm-eaten and filth ridden variety, always pushing the brutality.  This Belgian three-piece is sure to give you nightmares.
