New Jersey death metallers Dying Eyes Of Sloth formed in 2006, disbanded in 2008 and reformed in 2010. Disbanding again, they reformed in 2013 to re-release their debut demo Book Of Blood, an impressive release. Available for streaming on Facebook and Google, Book Of Blood displays promise on the band’s part to become a force to reckon with. There are hints of Slayer and Morbid Angel (Blessed Are The Sick) within these four songs; particularly in the second track “Beneath The Haunting Skies”; which they build on developing their sound. The recurring mid-tempo progressions, pounding double bass percussion and occasional horrid screams helping define the band grow on you not long after this EP gets underway. The technical capabilities they combine with a sense of relentlessness within the song structure becomes almost hypnotic as the EP progresses. The band plan to compose new material in the near future and updates can be viewed at their Facebook profile.
