3 Movements of the Sorrowful and meloncoly (Doom Edition )
VOID ROT - CONSUMED BY OBLIVION- MLP /Digital (Sentient Ruin Labs)
From the frozen north with 10,000 lakes Minnesota comes Void Rot with 3 track and just over 15 mins of crushing and suffocation Blackened Doom Death in the style of Incantation, Winter and Ceremonium . Loving what I hear as it really like dripping Molasses and then watching it dry to only have to fracture it with a hammer and start again. The ultra guttural vocals and that mid tempo Bolt Thrower meets Disembowelment riifage is more then i can really ask for . And with that I look to hear a long player and this is the best kind of Doom and we always need more of it .
Caustic Vomit- festering odes to deformity- tape/ digital ( Redefining darkness records)
Crusty Blackened Doom in the vein of bands like Thergothon, Cianide ,Womb , Unearthly Trance and even Immolation and Dusk. Loving the raw and meloncoly side of the Punk and Doom that is coming through with those early Death metal guitars and production. At time it reminds of Skepticism too . All I know is they could play with Doom , Crust or Death metal bands and all three crowds would dig it without fail. The gurgled vocals with all the rest and it glorious feedback is a welcome sound to these ears and now it's your turn to decide . Game On!!!!
Majestic Downfall - Waters Of Fate- CD/ Digital ( Solitude Productions/ Wierd Truth )
This is an Epic or Symphonic Doom/ Death very close to what labels like Peaceville, Avantgarde and Napalm have been releasing for many years I hear Early Anathema, My Dying Bride, Dolorian, Unholy, Novembers Doom, Morgion, Tristania, Saturnus and Morning Beloveth in the bands I would align this band with . Being from Mexico I know very few Doom bands from there so that adds to the magic and mystery of it all. This is very much Epic Classic Doom Death metal and stuff I have loved for over two decades now . If its not long slow and sorrowfilled what the point right and you get all that and more. There are some Blackened Death and More Chaotic Death metal moments but they speed at times really adds something to the over all atmosphere of the project. Check it out and you will see how impressive they are ..
