Label : Memento Mori Press : MEMENTO-XXXIII - Holland Year : 2014
New or Used : reissue new
Official reissue of the solitary album from this Dutch ensemble, originally released in 1993, featuring the "Symphony of in-dictment" demo (1992) as bonus tracks. This highly underrated and hideous gem from the old Dutch underground is a mon-ument of gloomy, rotting, dense and downtuned music from a band that doesn't waste any time on faint melodies but instead works to insinuate deafening sounds of Doom with the heaviness and aura of Death Metal in a way that will absolutely be revered by fans of bands such as Winter, Mythic, Ceremonium, Asphyx, Dusk, Sempiternal Deathreign, Symphony Of Grief, Autopsy, diSEMBOWELMENT, Rippikoulu, Castle and Eternal Darkness. All in all, "Ziyadah" has a strange yet fascinating appeal to it that will keep you re-visiting it over and over again for years and years to come.
