diSEMBOWELMENT : Deep Sensory Procession into Aural Fate

'Deep Sensory Procession Into Aural Fate' represents the first step diSEMBOWELMENT made in the direction that would make them a legend in the modern doom underground. It is with these two songs that they took a step away from the slightly raw and grindish material on the 'Mourning September' demo and towards the unique sound that featured on 'dUSK' and, more importantly, 'Transcendence Into The Peripheral', their masterpiece and swansong rolled in one.

On this demo we hear, for the first time, two songs that were to be reworked several times after. The 'My Divine Punishment' intro didn't make it to later versions of the band's work, but the rest of 'The Tree of Life and Death', as it would come to be called, remained virtually intact. As such, we are treated to 'little d's original mix of fast and extremely slow death metal in its pure form.

The same goes for 'A Burial at Ornans', aside from intro, outro and small details. Of course, the fineries that made the full length album so special are still absent on these tracks, but this certainly is an interesting release for those who are interested in diSEMBOWELMENT's musical history.

At the same time, this is also a pioneering release that would come to shape the sound of modern underground doom/death and funeral doom, together with the contemporary works of, for example, Thergothon and Winter. Many of today's artists were influenced by the sounds that first saw light in these two tracks.
