The Third Eye Rapists have released a compilation of their demo ‘Magicians of the Holocaust’ which has been combined with their last EP ‘Deathtrip Transcendence’ for release on 12” Vinyl via Amor Fati Productions. It’s been three years since both ‘Deathtrip Transcendence’ and ‘Magicians of The Holocaust’ were both released but now you have the chance to get them combined for your collection should you choose to do so. And why not? The Third Eye Rapists have some pretty solid music throughout these two releases so getting them in the one place and on vinyl might just be what you are looking for.
The group is made up of two brothers who hail from Sweden who came onto the scene around eight years ago before releasing their first EP ‘Hets Molt Allt’ back in 2014. It’s not the brothers’ first ever project as they were two thirds of Gothenburg’s Morbid Insulter so it looks like they have kept a hold of all duties and get to maintain the creative license of the band. Just their logo alone gives you a good idea of what to expect with the three syringes framing a triangle around the third eye.
Don’t say the Third Eye Rapists weren’t good to you as there’s also an extra track added and a new one at that in ‘Den Universella Våldtäkten’ which provides added incentive to obtain this record – like you needed more with the Third Eye Rapists’ own brand of what can be at times quite beastial metal. From the start they drag you in with ‘Endless Funeral Rapture’ which has pretty much all you could look for in a track. Riffs, rapid notes, tempo shifts and lots of heaviness. There’s some traditional black metal elements throughout but I think the brothers prefer to keep things fast and intense so the thrashier swings are more pronounced and impactful.
