Drawing on years of experience in the ranks of bands like Lividity, Cryptic Fog, Cereviscera and FIN, the members of Colossus are bonded together by a desire to push their abilities to the limits. Their debut album, Degenesis, is a tornado of sound, an excoriating symphony of violence that prophesizes rebirth and new beginnings through complete and utter annihilation. Screaming at the speed of light along the razor’s edge of an event horizon, Colossus decimate the limitations imposed upon brutal death metal, smashing through boundaries accepted by the drowsing pack.
The songs that form this skull shattering opus of destruction and resurrection are forged from wild, progressive inventiveness and base, bludgeoning brutality; a hybrid made possible by the application of extreme technical dexterity and the innovative use of two octave down, pitch shifted guitars – binding a monstrous, suffocating heaviness to fearsome velocity and Machiavellian virtuosity. Songs such as Spiteful Obliteration Of An Obsolete Reality, Malignant Eye Of Inexorable Ruin and the album’s shocking conclusion, the title track itself, Degenesis satisfy and surprise in equal measure. Everything you need from brutal death metal is here, in all its most powerful forms, but there is more as well. New, magnificently intimidating figures rise from the darkness and there is no escaping the feeling that you’re treading in dangerous, unknown territory.
With the peerless power of renowned label Comatose Music behind them, Colossus are now ready to unleash their remorseless, cleansing fire upon the world. When Degenesis hits the streets on February 5th 2021 there will be nowhere to run and no place to hide. The time to burn is coming…
Mankind’s days are numbered! Combining light speed, incisive riffs and elements of cosmic technicality with sheer heaviness that defies comprehension – sounds from beyond and beneath – come Collossus; a towering new force in the realms of ultra-extremity. On February 5th Comatose Music will unleash Degenesis, the debut album from these bringers of destruction and rebirth and a monstrous new era of devastation will begin.
