Aldebaran - Buried Beneath Aeons (CD) Cover Art Aldebaran - Buried Beneath Aeons (CD)



An eldritch call from the Mountains of Madness! Returning from the depths of R'lyeh, Aldebaran return with a new "EP". Moving in a more aesthetic and atmospheric direction than previous efforts, Buired Beneathe Aeons is slow, monolithic doom.

Aldebaran - Dwellers in Twilight (CD) Cover Art Aldebaran - Dwellers in Twilight (CD)



Aldebaran's approach to the sludge aesthetic is... epic and similar to how Sleep, Yob and Buried at Sea perceive "heavy.” Aldebaran build hypnotic dirges with their thick riffs, pounding away and carrying each song, then out of nowhere a sinisterly planted change throws the piece into a whole new direction, creating more opportunities for them to kill you off.

Slow, down-tuned heaviness somewhere between Yob and Bongzilla, with extra harsh snarly vocals.

This CD has a major Asunder influence and that is definitely a good thing.

Coffins/Otesanek - Split CD (CD) Cover Art Coffins/Otesanek - Split CD (CD)

Coffins cover Goatlord's "Acid Orgy".

Coffins features members of Dot[.] and Church Of Misery so prepare your head for the most impressive, devastating and crushing Death Doom on earth in the form of an agonizing hybrid between Corrupted with early Celtic Frost/Hellhammer. Without any kind of doubt Coffins are one of the heaviest bluntest bands.

Otesanek's sparse guitars and slow tempo are akin to Khanate and Unearthly Trance. The pounding percussions bring you back from the suspension of time.

This is a brutally crushing heavy split CD!

Howling Wind, The - Into the Cryosphere (LP) Cover Art Howling Wind, The - Into the Cryosphere (LP)

180gr. vinyl.

Into The Cryosphere focuses on a form of sludge laden black metal that mimics Unearthly Trance’s Celtic Frost, Venom and Bathory backbone but adds some frosty tremolo riffs here and there as balance. The result is an aptly named album that’s cavernous, sludgy, bleak and windswept as a tar pit in the Arctic Circle.

Runemagick - Envenom (2LP) Cover Art Runemagick - Envenom (2LP)

Limited edition of only 500 copies! Deluxe gatefold sleeve! Includes 3 live unreleased bonus tracks.

Now Runemagick have always been doomy, but this is the doomiest they have ever been. It is not an accessible album, and will definitely put off those not already into slow, crushing music with sparse vocals and a lot of ambient passages. But this is Doom all the way, with no nods to anything else. The album tends to get slower and more strange as it goes on. I can't say it kicks ass, because it doesn't kick – it's more like being pressed to death.

I always found it difficult to decide whether they are black metal or doom metal. And since I am not fond of black metal I have not paid attention to Runemagick for quiet some time, until I discovered them a few years ago. With Envenom, they have decided to surprise us with the purest funeral Viking doom I have ever encountered. I've always liked their Swedish/Norsk twists in their music, but in these heavy loaded doom riffs they express a misery and hopelessness I have never heard before. I am glad they chose the doom way.

Thralldom - A Shaman Steering the Vessel of Vastness (Color) (LP) Cover Art Thralldom - A Shaman Steering the Vessel of Vastness (Color) (LP)

Featuring members of Unearthly Trance. Colored vinyl!

Occult-ish, shamanic (as the title suggests), almost improvisational music, caustic, chaotic and with no real structure, the sounds Thralldom manufacture are rare and unsettling. This album is the prototype to any musical product that's non-immediate or instant, in the sense it deserves much attention and dwelling on its ideas and aesthetics, after which the final verdict could not ever be one of indifference, but one of either extreme annoyance or utter appreciation. This reviewer chooses the latter… Fans of Ordo Tyrannis, Thee Maldoror Collective and other quality outfits of black / industrial / ambient / noise will surely appreciate this one of a kind recording; others will just vehemently hate it and dismiss it as nothing but noise.

Shaman... ostensibly the swan song from Thralldom members Killusion, Jaldagar and the ever mysterious Wolfmaster, is the group’s finest effort, surprisingly steering itself clear of nearly any notion of Black Metal; instead offering a recording that leans mightily on manipulated ambience, whether it’s subliminal skree, atonally warped AM/shortwave transmission, or repetitive motif: fanged metal, Syd Barrett styled guitar somnolence.

Shaman... is received with great ambivalence, marking the end of a band that consistently went against the grain in a genre that pried itself away from nearly any sort of experimentally thematic provocation. Killusion and Wolfmaster will undoubtedly carry on with their main vehicle, Unearthly Trance; even contributing challenging takes on noise and metal ambient with shared and singular foray. Yet, Thralldom’s demise is ultimately disappointing, as the band provided a much needed recourse for those sickened by the lot of Black Metal bands content with picking off the genre’s decaying corpse.

Various Artists - Four Burials (4-Way Split) (2LP) Cover Art Various Artists - Four Burials (4-Way Split) (2LP)

Limited edition of only 500 copies on 180gr. vinyl. Deluxe gatefold sleeve.

Four Burials is a four-way split release between Mournful Congregation, Orthodox, Loss and Otesanek.

Otesanek delivers "Seven Are They", a slow sludge and drone doom dirge with loads of feedback, howled screams and growls and everything else putrid and vile.

Loss offers "(To Pass Away) Death March Towards My Ruin.

Orthodox's "Heritage" opens slow but steady, gradually evolving from minimal guitar strumming and odd spoken word to, well, it basically stays like that for the full run. A nice interlude among the crushing heaviness of the other three bands.

Mournful Congregation presents "Left Unspoken". It contains all the typical Mournful Congregation elements: slow, dirge-like guitar leads with their typical bends and slides, deep growled vocals and an overall utterly minimalistic approach.

Four Burials is a worthwhile and interesting release. For the experienced and seasoned collectors it contains new work from not-so-prolific bands. For the (Funeral) Doom newbie it is a possibility to check out some of the scene's underground upper middle class acts. And not to mention, it gives a good idea of the range of the Doom scene, although it is hardly the full view.

Something to be aware of...
By default, the search results include titles from The Archive. This will often give the impression that we don't do a very good job of keeping our titles in stock. This is not the case! Most of our 3,500+ active catalog titles are restocked regularly. It's the 7,500+ archived titles that are "unavailable". Use the search refinement options or do more specific searches if you're seeing too many "unavailable" items. Also, results are sorted by date with the newest releases at the top. Again, you can use the search refinement options to change this.

  • Refine by Category > All Else will hide archived titles and only show active catalog titles. (only available when there are enough search results to warrant it)
