Wormphlegm - Tomb of the Ancient King
Here's one for you funeral doom lovers out there. Wormphlegm play, slow, dark, agonizing funeral death/doom with a black metal style production. Each lead rings like a cavernous scream. Each riff pulverizes you with its crushing tone. Every growl and scream sounds as if the singer was actually being tortured while they recorded this. Everything drones and lingers, making sure it hits you, and hits you hard. This album is truly the essence of pain, and by pain, i'm not talking about mental anguish that is expressed in a more sorrowful manner like with, say, Esoteric. By pain, I mean being kidnapped by a psychopath, locked in a dark basement, and beaten with a hammer while having your eyeballs slowly ripped out of their sockets kind of pain. This album was pulled out of the darkest, deepest abyss you could possibly think of, and the beast that was lurking within this album is unleashed as soon as you press play.
If you like bands such as Esoteric, Loss, Evoken, and Thergothon, you will enjoy this, but I don't even know if those bands will prepare you for what awaits you with this album.
