oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom!

Around this time last year, Australian doom/death band Inverloch released their debut full-length to much acclaim. Their particular brand of doom is a moribund affair drenched in dread, rather than the comparatively friendly fuzzy stoner type we see so much of these days. The dense riffs lurch steadfast towards demise, the percussion echoes the gradual dismantlement of not only the surrounding physical environment but also the intangible, the two fusing together to invoke an atmosphere devoid of all hope and spirit, an incorporeal vacuum that envelops you entirely for nigh on 40 minutes. The quality songwriting found on Distance | Collapsed came as no surprise to some, considering the band is comprised of two members of the revered early 90’s Aussie act diSEMBOWELMENT, whose 1993 album Transcendence Into The Peripheral is regarded by many to be one of the true masterpieces of the genre…mostly because it is. Anyway, if you haven’t already done so, we highly recommend checking out Inverloch’s debut. Then after you decide that yes, you definitely want this album, proceed down below to see how you can win a copy.

            Then there is a lot at steak!

          • Sid Vicious Promos

            There isn’t a lot of meat to my idea but it is funny.

          • Wait. Did you just make a pun?

          • KyleJMcBride

            OUCH.

    • tigeraid

      Well that’s…. low-hanging fruit. Tastes like fruit all the same, though.

    Ripped apart by drop bears, of course.

      That’s what I assumed.

  • Sir Ukkometso The Based

    I thought that by “Free Doom” you ment free jazz musicians playing doom. I am disappointed.

    • Óðinn

      I want that now.

    I suck at photoshop, so I will submit the most Brootal Aussie story I know of to accompany it.

    I’d probably meet my Doom in the 1840s on Norfolk Island, “Hell in Paradise”. Y’know, the penal colony island that the PENAL COLONY ISLAND OF AUSTRALIA sent THEIR badest asses to.

    Maybe, out of colonial jealousy from the Aussies because our country didn’t get the filthy dregs of British society, I would be whipped mercilessly, flayed, put in the stocks and, when foreign ships were seen on the horizon, lit afire?

    —-

    An 1846 report by magistrate Robert Pringle Stuart exposed the horrors of torture and incessant flogging, the scarcity and poor quality of food, the inadequacy of housing and corruption of overseers.

    There were several unsuccessful mutinies, all desperate attempts to escape the hardships. On visiting Norfolk Island to comfort mutineers sentenced to execution, Father William Ullathorne, Vicar general of Sydney, remarked:

    “…The most heartrending scene that I ever witnessed. A literal fact that each man who heard his reprieve wept bitterly, and that each man who heard of his condemnation to death went down on his knees with dry eyes, and thanked God.”

    “It is no surprise the Irish got it worse than others. The most shocking element was a policy that held if foreign sails were seen on the horizon, then any Irish on the island should be gathered into a wooden stockade. If the ship landed, the stockade was to be set alight. They believed that if foreign forces came onto the island the Irish would support them in attacking the British.

    One notorious way of controlling rebel spirits in the settlement was the lash.
    Laurence Frayne, a Dubliner who was sent to New South Wales in 1826, and then to Norfolk when the colony tired of his repeated escape attempts, was given 300 lashes for calling lieutenant-governor James Thomas Morisset a “bastard”.
    He got 100 lashes, then when it scabbed over, he got another 100 and then another when that scabbed over.”

    Really good album – looked back on my best of list from last year trying to remember why this wasn’t on it.

    • Lacertilian

      It came out quite early on so it may have suffered a little as a result, I don’t recall seeing it on too many lists either come to think of it.

  • Stockhausen
    • Lacertilian

      This just became a self-fulfilling prophecy!

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    Inverloch was fine, but it didn’t hold a candle to the almighty dISEMBOWELMENT.

    Doom, could be traditional, mixed with Death Metal or be funereal but the truth is that bands like these gave us good “Doom” I guess: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2KI7xqq0pw with:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iME7C0Y7YHg and:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZGHqKxLlOg and this for last:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LD7f_JmoOsg

      Sadly, entirely possible.

    • Black Smallbeard

      funny that its a New York Times article

      • Óðinn

        “the media” 😉

        Breitbart ran an article about how Jimmy Carter nuked the UK by mistake in the 70s, and therefore this is exactly the same.

        • Black Smallbeard

          youre right, because trump hasnt nuked anyone. gg dems

          • Óðinn

            Let’s hope it stays that way.
