Solothus - Realm Of Ash And Blood LP (Red/Orange vinyl)
Transparent Red in Orange
Crawling from the charred grounds of a dirty and dry world comes Solothus, a Finnish doom/death act that makes music that strives for just that feeling. Their third album Realm Of Ash And Blood holds nothing back, dropping monstrous and explosive riffs with guttural and unlovable vocals all over the place. A comparison to Spectral Voice is the easiest one to make, but while those Denver dudes cast total blackness in their formula, Solothus manages to inject theirs with a hotter and dryer climate. Like the album cover suggests, it’s a record that comes damn close to depicting what a post-apocalyptic wasteland should feel like.
