UMUR
"Transcendence Into the Peripheral" is the debut full-length studio album by Australian doom/death metal act Disembowelment. The album was released through Relapse Records in the US and through Nuclear Blast Records in Europe in September 1993. Disembowelment were a relatively shortlived act and only released this one album (and a couple of minor releases) before disbanding.

The music on the album is slow, brutal yet atmospheric doom/death with the occasional deathgrinding section thrown in. Several members of the band played with a grindcore act called Bacteria before they formed Disembowelment, so I guess the grindcore influence came from those days. For the time "Transcendence Into the Peripheral" was a very original sounding release and it´s obvious why so many artists have since mentioned Disembowelment as an influence on their music. Most doom metal from those days were either traditional sounding doom metal or melancholic themed doom/death metal. The music on "Transcendence Into the Peripheral" is a different kind of beast. It´s extremely slow doom/death (funeral doom) with a bleak atmosphere and mystic themed lyrics. The growling vocals are brutal and purposedly almost completely unintelligible. There are a few clean chanting type vocals on the album too and some female talking on the atmospheric "Nightside of Eden", but the vocals on the album are predominantly growling.

The combination of old school death metal riffing, deathgrinding blast beats and ultra slow doom metal riffing paired with atmospheric lead guitars and clean guitar chords work wonders and create a dark and mystical atmosphere. Even today I´d call this original sounding. The fact that the tracks feature semi-progressive structures doesn´t make the listening experience any less intriguing. This is the kind of album that you can listen to over and over again and still find new details to discover. The whole thing is packed in a dark, raw, and brutal sound production that suits the music perfectly.

"Transcendence Into the Peripheral" is probably one of the most original sounding doom/death metal releases out there. Especially if you consider the time it was released. It´s groundbreaking and very influential too and a 4.5 (90%) rating is fully deserved.
