Hierophant : The Weight Of Winter



Prepare to abandon all hope and follow that one way downward spiral into depression. From these depths of depression and despair the sound of Hierophant echoes.

In the vein of bands like Thergothon and Skepticism, this mCD offers us funeral doom in its purest form. With grunts that sound like a horrible beast rather than a human being, music so heavy it could crush a grown up man and an average speed that would make the guys from Skepticism proud, it is hard to escape the cesspool of misery Hierophant opens.

It is also not surprising that fellow conveyers of ultimate musical despair Evoken personally recommend this work. Needless to say I am highly impressed. This is music that makes you turn the lights off, lay on your bed and sink away in self-pity.

The only true shame about this release is that Hierophant is cursed with a virus that infects almost all bands in this style: bad production. Also just like it happened with Dusk, diSEMBOWELMENT and Thergothon before, Hierophant was only short lived. Due to health reasons this mCD became Hierophant's swan song (be it a very deformed, sick and twisted swan with obvious suicide tensions). You can get this Mcd for $10 by sending an e-mail to blackbeyondsmusic@hotmail.com
