Catalog no.: IHRCD0000019

Item ID: 336492

The music presented on The Womb of the Earth is considerably more downtrodden and anguished than post-Epicus... Candlemass or the comparatively effervescent Count Raven. To listen to Fall Of The Idols is to be ushered, by phantasmal spirits, through collapsed, dilapidated ruins, abandoned shambles that once housed vitality and happiness. There isn't a hint of optimism to be exhumed from the suffocating mire of solemn cheerlessness, and the dogged languor and despondency of the band, at the very least, exudes a frightening sense of determination/conviction. For all the despairing single-mindedness of the album, Fall Of The Idols manage to imbue the proceedings with a captivatingly hypnotic quality that, coupled with the smothering, billowing atmosphere of the mix, makes each listen a headfirst plunge into the ghastly abyss of sorrow."

CENTURIONS GHOST - THE GREAT WORK

CENTURIONS GHOST - THE GREAT WORK

No retro trad doom here, though doom it still is. The first thing that clearly steers away from the pitfall of old school doom are the vocals, which are shouted and spitted out more in a post noisecore Neurosis sort of way. Also musically Centurions Ghost don't have too ... read more »

WALL OF SLEEP - ...AND HELL FOLLOWED WITH HIM

The Hungarian Doom Kings are back. This CD will leave no fan of WOS' earlier stuff disapointed as it is a feast for those into doom in the melodic and melancholic TROUBLE/SABBATH vein... Again, it's highly recommended material.
