Blackened Death Metal from Richmond, VA

 Their story began when like-minded musicians decided to marry their love of the extreme sounds and ideas of black metal and death metal with their own fucked up sense of dynamics that sees fast passages and intense harmonies steamroll into sludge riffs.  

With a focus on passion over precision, Appalling is about connecting. 

Whether with themselves or the listener, they seek to bring about new levels of Dionysian fever.

Reviews

"There is a sense of dread permeating Appalling‘s new album, Inverted Realm. The riffs used are twisted and inverted and each melody is haunting (and occasionally soars) against the crushing, high-speed backdrop that is Appalling’s music. There are clear similarities to bands like Morbid Angel and Absu, plus a hint of Cannibal Corpse, throughout Inverted Realm, adding a blackened touch to their sound.

“All your thoughts and prayers will burn away…” Appalling told Decibel about the record."



"The thing I really dug about this release is the ability of the band to sound like a wall of chaos and then reign it in and slow it down, while still keeping it heavy and hellish" - KEEP THE METAL FLOWING 


"a black metal interpretation of Morbid Angel" - CVLT LEGION  


 

"To say this an an essential extreme metal release of the year would be a grave understatement. It is undeniably worthy of endless replay value, it is experimental and unique to the point without it being shoved down your throat or have a saxophone on it, and it is just good ‘ol fashioned, genuine and passionate, American death metal… motherfucker."

Rating: 4/5

Gym Rating: 5/5 (crush it)
