Aethyr – “Messio” – [R.A.I.G.]
Ritualistic Russian doom metal. So heavy and sludgey you can almost swim in it. Infinite bass fuzz beneath squealing guitar feedback. Pounding barely-rhythmic dirgey industrial beats and choral moans. Lots of low vibrations and sub-sub-sub-harmonics to shake the cobwebs from your crucifix. Samples of Aleister Crowley add to the mass-like feel, although the album is more sonic than satanic.
