Phlebotomized - Immense Intense Suspense gatefold-2-LP
Deluxe gatefold sleeve, black 180 gram vinyl.
What do you get when you put Demilich, At The Gates’ first album/EP and Nocturnus into a blender to transform them into a hulking, abominable monster that
makes the major sciences weep and wonder why you created something that defies them so? Well… this. Indeed, this seems to be the only thing that can come
close to an auditory form of Cthulhu.
“Immense, Intense, Suspense” seems to have gotten lost somewhere in time. An album that contains so many different elements, from brutal, riff-filled structures,
to meloncholic, and bittersweet melodies, is hard to imagine being so unheard of. Perhaps it is just another album ahead of it’s time. This is a death metal album,
is it not?” Yes it is! But those of you who needn’t mindlessly bang your head, (as necessary as it is), who can allow things like atmosphere and intelligence to
occasionally permeate into your realm will really appreciate this.
You will bang your head to this if you bang your head to: Nocturnus, Demilich, At The Gates, My Dying Bride, Obscura, Portal
