Tech-death titans Reaping Asmodeia are truly a band who hold nothing back. The Minneapolis-based trio are well-versed in the art of combining the breakdown and shred-tastic riffage, and here to demonstrate their playing abilities is none other than guitarist Alex Kelly! With this playthrough for the song “Carnal Declivity” off the band’s 2017 record Impuritize, these dudes will have you begging for more. Watch and learn, only right here, on Gear Gods!
With relentless chugs, tightly palm-muted passages, and the occasional melodic line, Alex covers it all here. There’s a little bit of everything in this 5-minute long jam, and especially if you’re a fan of the heavy use of 8-string guitars, you’re gonna have a field day with this song. Top it off with some vibrant lights and quick editing, and you’ve got a recipe for a bangin’ playthrough.
The band just finished a tour with Sacramento-based death metal act Alterbeast, and will be playing at the Common Roots Festival in St. Cloud, MN on August 25th, 2018, so be sure to grab tickets if you’re in the area. In the meantime, get at them on Facebook and be sure to grab a copy of Impuritize on their Bandcamp and/or website. You can also stream it on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and Google Play.
