|This was the first diSEMBOWELMENT release that I ever heard. I first couldn't believe that this could be death/doom. It sounds like sludge/doom. Recently I have heard two of their later releases, namely 'dUSK' and 'Transcendence Into The Peripheral'. After hearing the clean sound on their other tracks, I realized that this really is death/doom. The quality of the recording is just so low that you would never have guessed...|
Despite the recording quality being a major minus, I wouldn't say that the demo is utterly ruined. The extreme doom we are served still creates the puddle of filth that it seems to be intended to do.
I should probably say that for those of you who consider My Dying Bride to be the doctrine of doom/death, have a listen to this. It's nowhere near being romantic. Nor is it peaceful and melodic. This is raw and brutal, like a scorching branding iron to the eye. Where My Dying Bride would mourn a break-up by writing poetry, these guys would grind the bitch into a bloody pulp.
Having said this, it is probably obvious that most melodic doom/death fans wouldn't really enjoy this. Fans of raw oldschool sludge/doom, or other extreme brutal and noisy music, would on the other hand find this to be their cup of sulphuric acid tea.
