Full of Hell is one of the most exciting bands to watch out for in modern hardcore. Their last   album Roots of Earth are Consuming my Home was probably one of the darkest, most “malicious” sounding hardcore I have ever set ears on.  Vii caso’s description of their live performance at Maryland Death Fest  made the band even  more intriguing as according to him  It was pure evil with  the  dark lighting and harsh noise transitions in between songs and too add to that a rabid, visceral frontman.  So it was obvious that there new album had some huge shoes to fill.

For those who don’t  know and would like to get some background  about this band ,Full of Hell  is  a four piece from Maryland/Pennsylvania , now that that’s  taken  care of  lets get down to business. When compared to their last album   the production is much more cleaner, however that does not really take anything away from the band as these guys still sound evil, nasty  and  at some points even  frightening  in a completely new way.  Whereas the previous album was all about  the high gain  heavy hardcore,  that mixed some  doom and sludge,  this album is much  more experimental , an example of which can be seen  in the track Coven of the Larynx which  has your typical chord driven  guitars  played to a skank beat   which is  layered with   oddball dissonance something that would fit well with Deathspell Omega, in fact  another track Indigence and Guilt has the  skank played along to very detailed, wicked and almost black metal  sounding guitars  not too dissimilar to other black  metal bands today  like Nightbringer and Aosoth. This reaches its peak in the track when the bands brand of technical, chaotic hardcore is juxtaposed with weird flanger guitar effects and power electronics. There are some tracks which move away from hardcore as well, for instance The Lord is my Light opens up with somewhat drone-ish   guitar work  which  brings images of  insanity, loneliness and desolation  which  later builds up to a sonic  nightmare  with weird guitar effects that  makes  you feel as if everything around you is melting  and  there’s no way you can run(damn this band  fuels me to write!) , and the last track In Contempt of Life where the band experiments with  really crushing  , sludgy/doomy guitars,  which is accompanied by some really chilled laidback  stoner rock drumming. But with all of that being said, these elements don’t really take away Full of Hell’s signature sound and in fact adds much more to it, making it much more elaborate.

Thus keeping everything in mind I would say that Rudiments of Mutilation is a challenging, yet highly rewarding release., that  will be enjoyed by anyone who  is into extreme music, not just hardcore.  One of the best hardcore releases of 2013 so far.
