seven skeletons You know that situation where you’re having sleep paralysis and there’s a demon pacing at the foot of the bed screaming at you to tell him where the key to the gate of hell is buried and you swear you don’t know but then he reveals he knows the map to the key is tattooed on your heart and he’s about to rip your chest open to get to it? This is the soundtrack for that.

Deadpanist Marigold King for the win. I never considered horns in a metal setting that is not symphonic, not really a fan of the genre, but this works flawlessly.

Romain Li Not gonna lie, this is slightly too intensely obscure for me. But you have to dig deeper, right?

SkyPanda Excellent split! Looking forward to future releases from both projects here, they both rip and tear! Favorite track: Mahlzahn.

For our first split release, we dug through the deepest trenches of the underground and unearthed some of the most insane projects we could possibly find!

MARIGOLD KING offer a truly unique whirlwind of cacophonous grandeur by employing the rather unusual instrumentation of brass, drums, bass and vocals.

Equal parts symphonic and discordant, 'Pillars to Unrelenting Suffering' crushes the listener with twisted compositions that are simply dizzying.

It's safe to say you haven't heard anything like this before, but if you dig the symphonic and opulent parts of Imperial Triumphant as well as the low end tension of Portal, Marigold King will turn your world upside down.

Needless to say, SWAMPWORM had their work cut out for them if they wanted to keep up with the insanity on side A.

But the cavernous dissonance they unleash on 'Nahab' takes no prisoners straight out the gate. This stuff is as abrasive as it gets, especially when it erupts with abrupt shockwaves of blast frenzy that seemingly come out of nowhere.

Along with Swampworm's murky production, their 4 tracks create a claustrophobic darkness that feels like it will swallow you at any moment. Embrace the paranoia!

For fans of: Portal, Imperial Triumphant, Amnutseba
