Doom death with old school vibes!
Welcome To Pleshiwar, which was only founded in 2021, already caused quite a stir in the German metal scene with their EP »Unsolved«, which was released in the same year as their formation, and also received a lot of positive feedback from the trade press for their first sign of life. No wonder, because the band consists entirely of proven scene veterans, who were previously active in bands such as Reawacan, Lacrima Christi, Immortalis and others.
With »Apostasy« the full-length debut of the quartet is now available and already a look at the track lengths between 6 and 7 minutes gives an idea of what you have to deal with musically: Dragging Death Doom, which cannot deny its influences of the genre greats of the 90s, is written large here and enriched with progressive passages to a great listening experience.
Welcome To Pleshiwar has succeeded in transporting the vibe of the 90s into the modern era and serving up a contemporary album with »Apostasy«, thus building a bridge between their own roots and the modern age. The production (mix & master) by Andy Classsen at Stage One does the rest to make this album a captivating experience.
