Triumvir Foul - Urine Of Abomination [Vrasubatlat / Invictus Productions / 20 Buck Spin - 2019]

American death metal duo Triumvir Foul, are from Portland, and formed in 2014. In the same year, a demo mini-album was released. Then, in 2015 and in 2017, two full-length albums were released.  And so, at the beginning of 2019, Triumvir Foul returned with a new mini-album, which is a joint release between American label Vrasubatlat, the Irish label Invictus Productions and the American label 20 Buck Spin. The mini-album Urine of Abomination appeared in several formats- LP in two variations - yellow and black, CD and tape, and digital form.

The cover is an oil painting of a rather coarse and gloomy manner. We see a giant thin horned humanoid creature, possibly a demon, who stands ankle-deep in a dirty yellow liquid, into which he pees. In his hands, he holds a torn human body. To the right of the picture is a vertical black stripe, which occupies about one-quarter of the entire width of the cover. At the top of this bar is a white, hard-to-read, asymmetrical Triumvir Foul logo, looks more like a spider's web or a mycelium. Just below the logo is the album name "Urine of Abomination", made in plain white font. So a rather gloomy and dirty, but perfect for the sounds within


The mini-album consists of four tracks of approximately the same length and lasts just over sixteen and a half minutes. The musical part of the album is classic death metal in the best traditions of this genre - heavy, brutal and fast, with screaming guitar solos and classic death metal vocals. I hear some digressions towards black metal and thrash metal, but since these styles have a common basis, it sounds very harmonious. There is no originality in the music of Triumvir Foul, but it is absolutely not necessary here. We hear the classic brutal Death metal in the spirit of Deicide, Morbid Angel and Malevolent Creation. However, the musicians decided to add some interesting sound inserts in the style of Harsh Noise. These elements are quite a few, they are used mainly as an intro and outro, but these noise inserts very well underline the brutality of the overall sound.

I am not a big death metal fan, however, I liked the album finding Urine of Abomination a very serious and solid work, despite its short runtime. Perhaps this is a good kick start before the next full-length album. I really hope that Triumvir Foul bring a little more Harsh Noise elements into their already brutal music.
