Mother Susurrus is the debut EP of the Finnish sludge group of the same name. Comprising of only two tracks worth of over 30 minutes of heavy goodness, this release is recommended for everyone with any interest in the style of music, as it is a free download.
Whoremonger is based on a slow punishing grind with a raw multi-tracked shriek/shout, somewhat resembling the vocal work you might hear on Isis albums, also incorporating a more post metallish spaced out section and an equally massively heavy finale with some soaring guitar before slowing and slowing and slowing to a halt. A hefty piece of metal, but the second track Apocatastasis puts another ten minuter on it. As opposed to the heavy handedness of the opener, this track starts with a bit more intricate riffing and drumming before bringing in the heavy wall of guitars and blood thirsty bellowing of the vocalist. Through twists and turns, some of them crushingly slow, some of them calmer (even featuring clean vocals) and some of them - dare I say it - at least a tad faster, the track comes to a close at 21 impressive minutes.
Slow, raw, heavy as lead. If those adjectives sound good to you, do yourself a favor and get this one. An extremely good debut release.
