Vitriol – Hive Lungs Song Review

Today we have reviewed a VITRIOL song with the brand new music video, HIVE LUNGS, along with its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Finally, the day has come, and I am writing about my favorite band of the last century. Before I begin with the song, let me give you a brief info about the gentlemen. Vitriol is officially making releases since 2017. They have started their careers with a single; “Pain Will Define Their Death” (2017), continued with three more singles; “The Parting of a Neck” (2018), “Crowned in Retaliation” (2019), “I Drown Nightly” (2019), and a full-length album; “To Bathe From the Throat of Cowardice” (2019). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Vitriol is an extreme death metal band, in my book, who has taken the flag from the pioneers of the origins of death metalDEATH. I discovered Vitriol with their latest album “To Bathe From the Throat of Cowardice,” and never stopped following their activity since. First of all, I’d like to start with their mission, the importance of Vitriol. They are certainly one of the most exceptional death metal bands of our age. They were born as a “hate” for every single f*cked up thing about our century (including; shitty modern metal). Vitriol is a proper pure death metal band not only with their music but also with their musical character, image, compositions, instrumentation, origins, and, most importantly, real personalities. They remind me of the actual reason why we all loved, respected, and admired Motorhead all our lives, which is because of the genuine personality of Lemmy Kilmister (R.I.P.). He played rock’n’roll and lived a rock’n’roll life. His music was his life as his lyrics were his story. Vitriol, in this case, is the symbol of pure death metal to me. I am a big-time Death / Chuck Schuldiner fan myself, and I kinda felt the same thing when I first saw Vitriol playing. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles, I am listening to tons of new music every day from all around the world. Honestly, guys, I haven’t heard anything like Vitriol for a long, long time.

Hive Lungs is an epic song with the necessary dynamics, energy, progression, instrumentation, and of course, Vitriol brutality. I consider Hive Lungs as one of their melodic songs. It has both technical and also very dark and melodic elements within, which immediately reminded me of the legendary “Opeth” from time to time. When we look at the general structure, the journey starts with a full-attack introduction, gets much more tense and melodic as the story continues. The composition has a beautiful balance, not too complex to lose your attention and excitement, also never boring with its simplicity. Of course, Vitriol shows their expertize with their instrumentation, as usual, and immediately pulling listeners into its dark world.


Technically, Hive Lungs has exceptional standards as well. Everything sounds clear, old-school, progressive, dark, and, most importantly, in great harmony. I am not sure who produced To Bathe From The Throat Of Cowardice, but I can easily say that he has done an exceptional job along with the musicians. This is one of the most epic-sounding metal albums I have listened to for a very long time. I am aware there are tons of great-sounding metal albums out there, yet this album has its special place in my heart.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am once again blown away by Vitriol. Hive Lungs simply is a masterpiece that marked the history of death metal. I am so grateful for having an old school band like Vitriol in this f*cked up era. I am not sure how you guys feel about the direction of music nowadays, but let me tell you this, trendy music always comes and goes, yet real bands with a genuine attitude live forever. And Vitriol is one of those for me, and I don’t think anybody can ever f*ck with them.

HIVE LUNGS has earned its place in our TOP METAL SONGS PLAYLIST on SPOTIFY.
