To Those Who Dwell in Ruin, the debut collaboration between Arizona Blackened Doom Metallers and London-based Merdumgiriz Records is out today on hand-made tape!
Four songs of distorted desolation divide the 25-minute EP. It starts out and is intercut with a nihilistic synthesizer track that speaks in tongues of desolate spirits entrapped in dungeons lost. The rest of the tracks are driven by sludgy fat distorted guitar sounds that leave you naked and half skinned between tall walls of the kick and snare that are at once deep and bulleting! The vocals, cymbals and all the high-pitched elements blend perfectly into this metal of ruins as pale spirits wandering in dark moist castle walls thanks to an analogous and raw production. Along with fast sections, romantically pessimistic solos and deep chanted vocals often cut by ambient atmospheres of haunted deeps, this album is a perfect addition to the mental asylum art syndicate of Merdumgiriz.
Chronovorus began in 2015 with the unified efforts of 4 wretched desert dwelling musicians. Veterans of Black Metal combined with the fresh blood of a new initiate mutated into the bleak doom laden Black Metal of Chronovorus. Within months the band recorded To Those Who Dwell In Ruin, a demo/Ep containing songs of bleak dead planets, cosmic horrors wrought by mad gods, and distorted ritual utterances. The band has since continued a series of live performances spreading their hideous messages to audiences.
As with all his work on Merdumgiriz Records, Emir Toğrul's grand vision, each copy of To Those Who Dwell in Ruin Tape will be made by hand in the artisanal style.
