Convulse is one of those bands that's capable of being completely unknown and legendary at the same time. Unknown to almost the entire known population of the Milky Way, legendary among the few appreciators of the Finnish (Nokia) Death metal scene. World Without God is their gem.
It's '92 when World Without God is released and although I'm not sure of the exact release date, I'm pretty sure I spent most of the particular day pooping my diapers, delicately placing my meals everywhere but in my mouth and generally annoying the crap out of my parents in as many different ways as possible. Good times.
A world without god must be a pretty ghastly world, because that's the sound of World Without God. There's a lot of depth to their production - especially the bass seems to roar into infinity - which greatly benefits the albums enveloping aspects. You will be sucked into the vortex of crazy spaced-out riffs and gutturals with that typical lovely hoarse edge to them. It's a relentless attack on the senses, in pure old school Death metal fashion. Every song is a delight with the constant changes in pace, the shifting between simple headbanger riffs and the more complex mindfucker riffs, the Doom-influences that seep in from time to time... What a dark and depressing album. It grabs you and does not let you go, for the full thirty-eight minutes. It's consistently strong throughout the entire album, it's wonderfully rotten and deceased, it's a World Without God.
Relapse Records re-released this otherwise near unattainable underground gem. They threw in the Resuscitation Of Evilness demo as well. Thanks, guys! Now there's no excuse anymore: if you dig old school Death metal, if you dig rotten and extreme music, if you dig spaced-out sonic violence - get yourself some World Without God!
