8-track split between Pittsburgh's death doom merchants Taphos Nomos and Iceland's Urðun.
Behold. Evidence of a vile collusion between Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s doom-death eidolons, Taphos Nomos, and Akureyri, Iceland’s most malign murkslingers, Urðun. Eight tracks of brain-liquefying horror, with Taphos Nomos offering up three brand new songs of vulgar schadenfreude praising humanity’s ever-nearing extinction, and Urðun anteing up with four new tracks of their own warped minds’ devising, plus an Autopsy cover. Deemed R.I.P. (Rarely Investigated Phenomena by Taphos Nomos & Rigorously Intensified Putrefaction by Urðun), this split proves that even over a quarter of a century later, death metal—at least in the gorey hands of these two young bands—is as putrid, harmful, and dead-alive as ever.
I score it a 10-9 round for Spectral Voice. They both brought the heat though and scored big blows...I'm impressed. Wish they had a couple tracks each yo. I'll have to peep some more of their shit. Sic artwork.
💀 ⛧⁶⁶⁶ I love 'a beacon in the husk' but this is my favorite Abyssal album so far. Gregg Cowell is a Genius and an awesome musician. Although it may sound overwhelming at first just hang in there you won't regret it. Best to turn the volume up on this one. This will make your brain work, rewire it or turn it to mush
Fantastic stuff. ²₳ÐHÐ𝟒ÐØØM̴⛧
