Review : Serocs - The Phobos/Deimos Suite by Pasif Agresif Webzine
Updated: Jun 18, 2020
Via Pasif Agresif Webzine (translated) : Today, we are with SEROCS, which was established as a one-man project in Mexico and subsequently bloomed withered flowers towards different continents. The project, launched by Antonio Freyre in 2009, is a formation that has branched over time and spread over a large periphery from the USA to Europe. SEROCS, which performs a brutal technical death metal, is once again in front of us to worry about our new album "The Phobos / Deimos Suite".
We are accustomed to musicians who started to do psychopathic works alone in his room and later found some other mental patients with similar thinking structures and brought the event to the group identity. SEROCS, which is probably included in this movement, the most known of which is NECROPHAGIST, is a project that has not only added other mental patients to its ranks, but also included some of the most valuable musicians in the market.
Perhaps the most important of these people, CHTHE'ILIST 'ten FIRST FRAGMENT ' a, zealotry from the funebrarum take place until all the projects under recent converts underground phenomenon guitarist Phil Tougas. “The Phobos / Deimos Suite”, the third SEROCS album that included his contribution, removed the bassist, drummer and vocalist this year, and with two perverts playing in CHTHE'ILIST and ZEALTORY together with Tougas, the most recently raised in Europe. He brought Kévin Paradis, one of the psychopathic drummers. Paradis, which shook baguettes in groups such as BENIGHTED , SVART CROWN, MELECHESH , SHINING , was one of the important elements that brought the destructive power of "The Phobos / Deimos Suite" to the top. SEROCS 'music; We can summarize it as a death metal based on ugliness, focusing on the dirty side of the event and avoiding the cillop mechanical tech-death. Even though it is full of finger-breaking riffs that give the necessary importance to scratching, there is a music filled with bone sounds that does not mess with our face as “shhovvvvvvv tayyyyyyym” for a moment, in “The Phobos / Deimos Suite”. Nowhere else in the album is the quest to be pleasing to the eyes, sweeps like sugar or something. A dark air, uncannyness, an indeterminate nothingness reflecting the lid is presented for 46 minutes. While listening to the album, we take the surgical side of the technical death metal at the same time with the brutality of brutal death metal. There is a very fluid and variable structure in the album, which is Slam, break down is never mentioned. The album, which is obviously the name of the song, which is hard to remember, is a work that offers you fine workmanship in every moment and does this in an extremely organic and extremely natural way. “The Phobos / Deimos Suite”, which contains high level musicians that require guitarists to concentrate on guitars and drummers to concentrate on drums, becomes more plump, strong and threatening with the bass being toned in a delectable bony bone. Especially the bass strumming of the bass and the vocal wheezing match up so beautifully in some moments, the bass guitar supports the vocal so well, You think the bass and vocals are coming out of the throat of the same creature. In this way, this 1000 different riffs, transitions, etc. the album that is playing is playing as it plays itself. As I said in many reviews before, listening to the music that comes from the hands of men who know the job is another. If there is a saying like “how football is played with good players”, technical death metal is also good when it is made by musicians who know technical death metal well. Especially when he adds such an integrated brutality, such a delicious production, he is not eaten from his nanny. 8/10
