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 intriguing artwork by Micha Schneider on the front in full colour.
While most bands are content reinterpreting established forms of death/grind music, Terra Builder are constructing their own contemporary version of the same. The songs have the desired cathartic expression but are more meticulous and calculated than normal, and in their case, even have elements of black and sludge metal. It all comes together brilliantly, as they channel their diverse influences through a coherent and consistent sound that they can begin to call their own. Charting through varying terrains, their unpredictable progressions often culminate in neck-snapping breakdowns or massive earth-heaving chugs. All of this is done under the cover of darkness, with the sound exuding a peculiar futuristic, post-apocalyptic vibe. It’s clear that Terra Builder are onto something here, creating superbly-written forward-thinking, dark, and invigorating music finely blending suitable elements from multiple extreme metal styles on only their debut release.
