This is DOOM. Skull pounding, city block crushing heaviness, basically from the moment this 44 minute track begins to the moment it closes. Within the simplistic, yet catchy riffage lies a decent amount of melody and variety, giving the gargantuan track some well rounded dynamics, making this anything but an un-listenable dirge. There's even a disquieting moment of quietude nearly 30 minutes in that mixes things up a little further.

Fister's punishing, yet focused style make this highly recommended for fans of the blacker doom side of things - ala Corrupted or Moss, though theirs is a more varied style, sometimes dipping into death metal chugs alongside plodding, pulverizing guitars. Fresh from the band, this is free to stream on bandcamp, and well worth a listen if you've got 44 minutes to spare.

They save the best aggression for last.

Yeah, I've had a long hiatus due to buying my first house and working basically full time, along with taking up some other hobbies. Hopefully will be back here more often, though I'll refrain jumping back into collab gear at the moment. Still got lots of generic real life things going on.

Great to see more reviews from you. I was beginning to fear we wouldn´t see you again.
