Psychodelic Death

by Sign of Evil

And now it’s here, bearing the continuing-the-tale title of Psychodelic Death.

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!

Released May 20, 2022

  • "This may not be the most finely tuned South American extreme metal release, and it certainly has its rough edges, but that's honestly a huge part of the appeal of what Sign Of Evil have accomplished. A record with a spelling error in the goddamn title isn't supposed to be some sort of prog epic, it's supposed to be a stunner that speaks to the twisted visions that have helped craft this music in the first place. Sign Of Evil use Psychodelic Death to prove they are among the evillest and weirdest around and you need them in your life."
  • "(...) and even more chaotic at times as there are some chaotic riffs spewed all over this. And the title fits this well as you will be taken on a ride that will explode your mind. A solid release from top to bottom definitely give this a listen."
