album artwork for Holy Rotten Blood by Father Befouled

Death metal with a satisfying amount of doom thrown in. Crushing, a bit atmospheric, unrelenting. Vocals are way down in the mix, but present, and it works. It’s all about those filthy guitars. The drums provide a pummeling barrage but aren’t the focus.

  1. 4:42 Full gallop of the apocalypse horse leads to a staggering breakdown.
  2. 2:04 This song is more like an interlude, or an idea for a song that didn’t become a fully-fledged piece. Instrumental.
  3. 3:47 Intensity picks back up with this track. Funereal doom-reminiscent breakdown before a crashing end.
  4. 4:16 Moderately fast-paced death leads to a trudging middle section before resuming the onslaught.
  5. 3:42 Starts out relatively mellow. There’s a somewhat unhinged guitar solo in there.
  6. 4:58 Features the heaviest, chuggiest riff on the CD.
