Yuggoth, goth rock, deathrock, death metal... Rogga?

Roger “Rogga” Johansson Guitars, Vocals
See also: Bloodgut, Bone Gnawer, Fondlecorpse, Humanity Delete, Paganizer, Putrevore, Revolting, Ribspreader, Swarming, The 11th Hour, The Grotesquery, Those Who Bring the Torture, Demiurg, ex-Carve, ex-Foreboding, ex-Terminal Grip, Eaten (Swe), ex-Banished from Inferno, ex-Deranged, ex-Sinners Burn.

Yes, that’s quite the pedigree, right. If I’d check how many releases with Rogga I bought in the last 5 years, I’m sure I could come up with at least 10 records. Not that I’m a fanboy but when it comes to Old-school Death Metal meant for deathsters and not just Black Metal rejects, Rogga is essentially everywhere. Just a week ago I had finished reviewing Humanity Delete, a solo project of his, and I’m back at him again.

If I did find Humanity Delete to be just on par with other Roggamuffin releases, I am pleased to say that Megascavenger’s Descent of Yuggoth is actually better and more varied than the regular d-beat infused Death Metal I witnessed in Humanity Delete. Instead of d-beating, Megascavenger present a more traditional Death n’ Roll approach a la Swedeath. His vocals are still reminiscent at time of Greenway’s but the heavy layers of effects added here and there give a whole different intonation. Guitars seem to have been cursed by lycanthropy and are more Wolverine-like and sometimes, most notably on the closing track To Rebel with Vermin, have even some kind of Deathrock approach (and to you ignorant fools, we’re talking more Christian Death than Pungent Stench, grow up!).

Add to this that this is somehow laced with Lovecraftian mythos (Yuggoth is a planet lying on the outskirts of the Solar system which corresponds to Pluto, discovered in the 1930s) and it gives us a rather interesting album, part Death Metal, part Deathrock, which has its moments of brutality, catchiness and even some melancholy with those Deathrock guitars. If not unforgettable it is still memorable enough in its weird expression to linger, maybe, a little longer than other more generic Roggalicious projects.
