Death Doom explorers Assumption are ready to sink into outer cosmos again! Following their critically acclaimed EP "The Three Appearances" these three new tracks (clocking around 37 minutes) continue developing the psychedelic aura of the italian band to reach a new level of sonic deviation where visionary Floyd-esque sections are combined with extremely heavy, downtempo riffs.
Initially started in 2011 as a studio-project with David on drums and Giorgio on vocals and all the other instruments, Assumption have managed to set up a live line-up throughout the years, sharing stages with bands such as Esoteric, Demilich, Sub Rosa and so on.
The second coming of Convocation brings us the finnish Doom Death band (feat. members of Desolate Shrine and Dark Buddha Rising) at its bleakest and most majestic peak.
Ashes Coalesce is an album of contrasts and confusion, beautiful yet horrifying.
Mesmerizing and gloomy Doom-Death from the most ghastly recesses of Finland. Merging the composing talents of LL from Desolate Shrine with the multi layered vocals of NM from Dark Buddha Rising, Convocation will haunt you and abrade your guts with the most spectral yet punishing tones you could experience!
Darkened, dissonant and furious black metal explorations converge in this 27 minutes debut EP.
?Let?s make one thing clear. We need to stress the fact that our era is lost in a huge void of numbness. We are here to bring and present you what your system could not solve by itself. We?ll cover the daylight with ashes and smash the massive skull that?s blocking your brain and will to evolve. We?re GAEREA.?
From the swamping lands of Finland death/grind trio GALVANIZER emerges with their debut album "Sanguine Vigil" after having paid all their dues with several tapes and a 7"ep like we were used back in the 90s.
GALVANIZER have quickly become one of the most promising underground acts around, their old school approach perfectly combines with their youthful energy and their sound will perfectly please both fans of old school finnish death metal and modern deathgrind sounds.
Italian Death Metal worshippers VALGRIND return one year after their widely acclaimed "Speech Of The Flame" with the new blood claiming EP "Seal Of Phobos".
Vocalist & bass player Daniele Lupidi states: "This is probably our most aggressive material to date. All of the four tracks are extremely intense and we decided to go with a different vocal approach for every tune to give each one its own strong identity. We're also extremely happy to have Jonny Petterson (Wombbath Ashcloud, Henry Kane) doing some guest vox on "Ekphora's Day". Last but not least, this is the first studio appearance for our new guitarist Umberto Poncina, who also engineered and mixed the EP."
For fans of MORBID ANGEL, MONSTROSITY, CRUCIAMENTUM.
Cosmic death/doom from Minneapolis/MN (United States).
Formed in 2017, Void Rot is a death/doom band which draws on bands such as Krypts, Spectral Voice, Convocation and Rippikoulu for inspiration. Void Rots debut EP "Consumed by Oblivion" delivers a haunting and crushing atmosphere accentuated by bursts of raw darkness.
For fans of Krypts, Spectral Voice, Rippikoulu, (early) Hooded Menace
Uprising US Death Doom titans VOID ROT will finally land their debut full length upon mankind after an EP and a split with ATAVISMA.
Ominous. Threatening. Crushing.
VOID ROT from Minneapolis MN, USA, formed in 2017 with influences from the glorious progenitors of majestic, atmospheric and slow moving death metal like Winter, Rippikoulu and diSEMBOWELMENT, as well as newer entries within the genre such as Krypts, Spectral Voice and Sempiternal Dusk. Void Rot weave light and darkness seamlessly and with unseen mastery, evoking atmospheres of unparalleled vastness that alternate majestically between sidereal and contemplative psychedelia, and visceral and bludgeoning heaviness.
In an era of "old school" underweight hipster revivalists drenched in reverbs and "atmosphere" (that doesn't sound old school at all), VoV comes back after 6 years of riots, line-up genocides and mental breakdowns striking with 2 new death hymns, already released on tape by Unholy Domain records (august 2016) now ready for proper vinyl and mcd (with 4 bonus tracks) format by Everlasting Spew Records. VoV is not revival, VoV is comprised of people who have grown up in the early 90's and you'll clearly hear it.
For fans of (early) DEMIGOD, TRAUMATIC, (early) DISGRACE, (early) MASSACRE and FUNEBRARUM.
