These are high quality double LPs imported from Czech Republic for which a dedicated vinyl master is used. They come in an extra thick gatefold LP sleeve with metallic effect all over and embossing done on the logos. They’re strictly limited to 75 LPs per colour variant and won’t be repressed.
Please bear in mind that these colours are for representational purpose only and the actual products may differ. Also the shipping date is tentative and it’s likely that the LPs will be shipped out sooner, depending on the backlog at the pressing plants.
The Slow Death are an exceptional band that straddles the emotive as well as heavier aspect of atmospheric death/doom metal. There are eerie, haunting female vocals alternated with abysmally low growls to go with similarly undulating music, encompassing a terrific range of heart-rending expression. Members of veteran bands such as Illimitable Dolor, Horrisonous, ex-Mournful Congregation ensure that the music remains engaging, even during the sparser, atmospheric parts, which invariably give way to soul-piercing solos or dread-inducing chugging parts. This is a staggering interpretation of the double-edged style with everything remaining all too palpable, as it hurtles you through a harrowing, emotional roller-coaster ride through four epochal tracks averaging over 15 minutes, at the end of which you’ll emerge cleansed, purged, feeling exhausted but somehow lighter. It’s a microcosm of the events that are bound to unfold in everyone’s life, and The Slow Death couldn’t express the inevitable moments of grief and triumph any better through their emotionally-charged music. Six years in the making, ‘Siege’ is sure to be remembered as one of the best albums in the style.
