Druid Lord / Skeletal Spectre - "Druid Lord vs Skeletal Spectre Split 7” ...
Track “Dark Age Sorcery”, by Druid Lord, is a concentrate of evil, darkness and perversion expressed by means of slow, crushing distortion, sick and sinister Floridian death metal-styled riffs and sepulchral atmospheres where doom is adding tombstone-like heaviness as well as a sort of morbid, swampish retro-groove. Growled vocals are overwhelmed by the coarse vibration of the heavily downtuned guitars. The effect is like scary roars from the underworld muffled by the soil on the tomb … They are coming!!!!
Track “Malevolent Patricide”, by Skeletal Spectre, is lead by some tight, obsessive, relentless, earth-ripping riffage sustained by a seismic drumming. Absolutely inhuman, infernal vocals by Vanessa are coupled with the deep distorted, and sometimes sickly dissonant howls of the lead guitar. This track is therefore rather dynamic although the pace periodically slows down into morbid mixtures of distortion and dissonance. Folks, watch out, Hell is open …
This split was released last year at Halloween. It is out via label Horror Pain Gore Death Productions (HPGD Prods) as gruesome limited edition on translucent, funereal purple vinyl and cool packaging.
Prescribed for those who are into Coffins, Decrepitaph, Hooded Menace, Acid Witch, and other nasty new and old sick bunches of metallers …
