Has the feel of the grave oozing from your speakers
COMMENTS:
After listening to this album, I was floored to see that it was released back in 2011. I don't know what rock I had crawled under that caused me to miss this one but I'm glad I had an opportunity to check this one out. Vastum has a sound that while incorporating the key elements of death metal also has their own stamp on it. Galloping riffs are mixed with slowed tempos and some doom for a real funeral feel to it. The vocals are harsh, throaty and perfect. It's as though you can feel death itself oozing from your speakers when you're listening to this album. Another album that is restoring my faith in death metal returning to its form.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Obituary, Bolt Thrower, Immolation
