Description

Death/Doom, Undefinable

Maybe the ultimate Doom Metal band creating a very powerful atmosphere filled with apathy, insanity, hate and disgust for the human race. Ultra slow music, very long tracks, a devastating, apocalyptic sound with samples (on their early releases) and highly distorted vocals. Their roots are in the early extreme Death/Doom and Funeral Doom sector, but their sound has always been unique enough to have had a significant impact on the development of Extreme Doom. 'The Maniacal Vale' marks a development towards a more melodic, clean and accessible sound, also in terms of production, but the band still maintains their trademark psychedelic flourishes and complex songwriting.

Misc

Because the tracks can range anything from +- 3 minutes to +- 27 minutes, most of their albums became double CDs (due to the extremely long running time). The re-release of 'Esoteric Emotions: The Death of Ignorance' was unofficial and on CDr, but nevertheless the demo tracks were remastered.
