Blood Harvest presents the highly anticipated debut album of Sweden's Tehom. With a lineup whose roots run deep in the Swedish underground for the past 20+ years, Tehom mainline that combined experience into a beast of blackened death metal as fresh as it is timeless. With all but a demo prior, on their debut albumThe Merciless Light the quartet took their time to finesse and fine-tune their sound into one that spans decades without bearing the stench of "retro" tedium. It's proudly and mercilessly death metal, but blackened in a most barbaric manner, gnarly and gnawing and knowing no respite, but never forgetting the iron-fisted fundamentals of harnessing chaos into streamlined form. Indeed, the art of Tehom in general and The Merciless Light in particular is chaos gnosticism given flesh; the lyrics are thoroughly researched and even-more-thoroughly practiced.
