Frighteningly young, Haalbuaer are a brand-new formation from Molde, Norway whose sound positively screams 1990 in every way. Despite their age, Haalbuaer are the real fucking deal, as displayed by their quick-hitting mini-debut, Mortal Ones Scream in Horror. Here, you've got 21 minutes of death-like blaspheming carnage, hooking your face with cold-steel chains to torment you for an eternity. It's deceptively simple and fondly familiar - think earliest Impetigo, Bolt Thrower, Autopsy, and Suffocation - but it's exceedingly sublime, the power-trio wrangling and wrenching every last bit of blood and gore from their creations, which ably balance blasting, galloping, and dooming alike. With mini-hits like "Acts of Morbid Perversion," "Inhale the Nauseating Fumes," and "Gorespawn," Haalbuaer leave you with no room to breathe fresh air - only the foulest and most sickening stench!
Like a long lost demo from the formative years...
