Question - Gnosis Primordial LP
You love sick death-metal but at the same time you’re too often disappointed that not that many dare taking some risks while still retaining that fetid and old-school vibe, like MORBUS CHRON or CARBONIZED before them? You thought that QUESTION debut full-length ‘Doomed Passages’ was one of 2014’s most overlooked DM masterpiece? Then rejoice because the Mexicans are at it again with a brand new five tracks EP, ‘Gnosis Primordial’.
While it still follows its predecessor unique take on the genre under the guidance of their early 90’s Finnish and Swedish elders, there’s a growing sense of dissonance and various tiny details that you might not realize at first here that betrays their desire to strive above the scene current conservatism while remaining faithful to their roots. Clocking at 24 minutes, ‘Gnosis Primordial’ is another proof that QUESTIONs are currently Mexico mot promising young death merchants!
