The peaceful, mountainous landscape of Edgewater, Colorado, could be considered an unlikely birthplace for cutting-edge extreme music. Yet with Cephalic Carnage flying the flag, it's clear that metal truly has no geographical boundaries. Describing their sound as "Rocky Mountain Hydrogrind," the band has created a fifth full-length that's beyond heavy, with musicianship that is terrifyingly technical and precise, offering a stark counterpart to the music's unfettered sonic brutality.
