Psionic Madness are a band from South Carolina that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a progressive, technical and dissonant mixture of black, death metal and grindcore and this is a review of their 2022 album "Rotting Dominion" which will b e released in October by Vargheist Records.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album before going into a faster direction which also adds in a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with the vocals being mostly deep cavernous death emtal growls and black emtal s creams are also utilized at times.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are also done in a very chaotic style. At times the music also gets very technical and dissonant sounding along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a great amount of grindcore elements as well as the music also having its progressive moments and a couple of the tracks are also very long and epic in length
On this recording Psionic Madness takes dissonant black and technical death metal and mixes it with grindcore to create a very diverse recording. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover a posy apocalypse wasteland and the effects of nuclear war.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Psionic Madness and if you are a fan of technical, dissonant and progressive black, death metal and grindcore, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Necrotizing Miasma" "Mutated natural Selection" and "Nuclear Twilight". 8 out of 10.
