Combining epic deathcore with a brutal death metal influence, South African Vulvodynia have grown into an incredible band.
This is simultaneously terrifying and epic in a way most deathcore tries (and fails) to be. Booming riffs, animalistic vocals, and undeniable sense of… well.. triumphance. This is deathcore at is most grand. Huge compositions, with symphonic flourish and glorious atmosphere.
Two weeks ago, Vulvodynia released their latest album, ‘Praenuntius Infiniti’, and it is an absolute fucking monster. Everything they’d worked towards with the previous three albums was suddenly made manifest. At nearly an hour long, it is a gargantuan offering of face-smashing, weirdly beautiful, deathcore bombast.
Vulvodynia are one of the best deathcore bands on the planet. ‘Praenuntius Infiniti’ thoroughly cements this for me. If this trajectory continues, I can’t even imagine the utter insanity they will unleash via future albums.
