sludgy detuned black metal, with basement (dungeon?)-esque production to boot
lots of overdubbed excerpts from sinister-sounding soundbytes/ movies, not unlike White/Rob Zombie, or bits of Exodus’ Pleasures of the Flesh….
trebly-yet-low tunings, blast beats that segue well into lurching riffs, vocals so buried they’re like a meth addict screaming from next door
requires some degree of desensitization to appreciate (like black metal)
“Boiled Angel,” “Buried With Leeches,” (at 1:43 becomes noticeably louder; highlights cheap –tr00?– production), and at 4:44 drops into a lurching two-chord riff with tribal drumming slowly emerging from underneath… then sounds like a thrash band’s breakdown (but all while sounding like the same band, not a hodge-podge of styles), nicely blended
Final track “Totem of Skulls,” is ambient, studded with audio tracks of… excerpted psychotic manifesto talking points….
Severely-abused-child-with-psychotic-disorder’s-drawing cover art aside, worth checking out.
