These are ultra high quality long sleeve T-shirts that have the album artwork printed on specially made thick and soft 100% cotton material and they fit great. They’re prewashed to avoid any shrinking issues. There are prints on both the sleeves and of course the gnarly artwork by Marcio Blasphemator on the front in full colour.
With manic glee, Fathomless Ritual recreate the maddening, unhinged kind of death metal created by the likes of Demilich and give their own ugly, grime-ridden twist to it. The music has a darker, murkier, cavernous sound but all the same has a denser quality and a sense of modern urgency about it which livens up the proceedings. There’s nary a dull moment on the album with there being a constant barrage of riffs all wriggling their way into your brain but it’s done in such a boisterous manner that it doesn’t feel at all life-threatening. Having the experience of bands such as Gutvoid, Fumes, Pukewraith, the sole mastermind behind the band, B. Dean, knows his way around death metal and how best to compound this particular style without destroying its essence or appeal for that matter. Without attempting to dethrone the gods, he’s made a conscientious effort to make the sound more extreme and relevant in his own way and to that extent it works amazingly well. This is an album that should delight any fan of underground death metal music.
For fans of: Demilich, Chthe’ilist, Dead and Dripping, Mortiferum, Dead, Adramelech
