Australian funeral doom/death metal band The Slow Death featuring members of Illimitable Dolor, Horrisonous, Murkrat and more has unveiled the new track »Pestilence« from the upcoming full-length album, »Siege«, set to release on August 27th, 2021 via Transcending Obscurity Records.
04. Ascent Of The Flames
From Transcending Obscurity Records:
The Slow Death are an exceptional band that straddles the emotive as well as heavier aspect of atmospheric death/doom metal. There are eerie, haunting female vocals alternated with abysmally low growls to go with similarly undulating music, encompassing a terrific range of heart-rending expression. Members of veteran bands such as Illimitable Dolor, Horrisonous, ex-Mournful Congregation ensure that the music remains engaging, even during the sparser, atmospheric parts, which invariably give way to soul-piercing solos or dread-inducing chugging parts. This is a staggering interpretation of the double-edged style with everything remaining all too palpable, as it hurtles you through a harrowing, emotional roller-coaster ride through four epochal tracks averaging over 15 minutes, at the end of which you’ll emerge cleansed, purged, feeling exhausted but somehow lighter. It’s a microcosm of the events that are bound to unfold in everyone’s life, and The Slow Death couldn’t express the inevitable moments of grief and triumph any better through their emotionally-charged music. Six years in the making, »Siege« is sure to be remembered as one of the best albums in the style.
