Seoul-based South Korean sludge metal miserists Gawthrop join Sentient Ruin for »Deterioration«, a glorious torment and misery-fucked 12″ vinyl compilation of the band’s first two incredible demo tapes (2019’s »Demo« and 2022’s »Jumbo«). A wretched amplifier worshiping monstrosity of complete antihuman heaviness, the glorious release channels the hate-drenched and bottom-caving megaton doom of legends like Corrupted, Meth Drinker, Nootgrush, HELL, Grief and Thorr’s Hammer into six colossal slabs of pure earth-shaking, downtuned slow-crawling sonic torment that will stomp, crush and flatten the listener to death.
All songs by Gawthrop.
Tracks 1-3 recorded at Studio Dunba, Seoul, May 2019.
Tracks 4-6 recorded at Studio Cogason, Seoul, June 2021.
