On their self-titled debut full-length record, Cirrhus delivers 34 minutes of oppressive, tortured, raw Black Metal with distinct punk leanings. The music on this album is full of conviction, swirling and buzzing with tremendous intent, mostly at breakneck pace. Kind of like the bastard child of Bone Awl and Fell Voices, this is the latest fascinating BM band to come at us out of the good old USA.
Beneath the chaotic maelstrom, there’s a generous dollop of sinister melodies to be found, although ‘Cirrhus’ is a potent headfuck first and foremost. The record comes with two small inserts containing lyrics and band pics. All in all, this is an excellent, unconventional listen and a very good product to boot.
