Now, most metal albums /EP’s wouldn’t be thought to start off with an acoustic, instrumental song, but that’s what Accursed Spawn did. “Putrid” is a slower song, that speeds up later on. It was a good intro for tricking you into thinking these guys changed their sound on you… that is until you get to the next one.
“Sedate to Mutilate” is the complete opposite, and definitely shows their extreme style. The vocals are dark, the pace is very upbeat and there is an insane guitar rift near the middle of the song.
The other three songs each are this insane, aggressively loud sound that anyone who wants to unleash their inner angst would enjoy.

Aside from psychology, my passion has always been for music and storytelling. It is my dream to be in the industry, and music journalism seems to be the perfect fit. Along with a bit of photography dabbling, I think I’m pretty well on on my way.
When I’m not working, I’m listening to music, finding new artists to love, playing Dungeons and Dragons, or playing with my cats.
