Keep 1-4 of Your Eyes Open for Swallowed’s Lunarterial

Swallowed’s self-titled EP dropped way back in 2010 and I’ve since forgotten about it. Not that it wasn’t good — it was — I just got caught up in other things, okay? Shit.

Now these Finns are set to release their first full-length album, apparently four years in the making, on October 14.

Swallowed

The hooded hooligans are streaming a song from their upcoming Lunarterial right now. It’s called “Arterial Mists of Doom,” which is the best song name of the year. I’m a real advocate for putting “of Doom” after just about anything. It’s also the soundtrack to having your soul sucked out slowly, which I have a little bit of experience with as a married man/cat owner.

I wouldn’t blame those of you who don’t like it, but for some reason I can’t stop listening to this song. At the very least you have to admit it’s disconcerting, even for a genre like death/doom. There’s something really unsettling about the way the drums are presented, almost completely arbitrary to the framework set by the massive, noxious chords.

If you get bored, just hold out for about two minutes and maybe the brief, toxic groove will satiate your attention deficit disorder. Make it another minute and surrender to the soul vacuum. Of doom.

Stream “Aterial Mists of Doom” below!

Do you hate this and/or me? Is it soooo booooooring? Tell me about it in the comments!

  • Tyree

    SO EXCITED FOR THIS!

    • Scrimm

      I have full faith in Finnish bands to bring the darkness.

      • Tyree

        I’m sure it will destroy!

      • The Finns do have a knack for scaring the shit out of me.

        • Tyree

          Fins that stick out if the ocean waters scare me too.

            ~~~~^~~~~~

            Duh-nuh!

        • Scrimm

          Agreed. Krypts, Corpsessed, Gorephilia and now this. So good.

          • Xan

            Corpsessed is incredible. One of the most evil sounding records I’ve listened to this year.

          • Scrimm

            I want that sound.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            XAN, i am passing the hang in there its friday meme to you. I have something new in mind for tomorrow. Congratulations, you earned it. Don’t let CROM, our fellow toilet bowlers or most importantly yourself down. This is a sacred trust.

          • Xan

            I shall honor the tradition with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength.

          • Kazz

            Gorephilia’s last album was awesome. They deserve more attention.

          • Scrimm

            I know it’s criminal. Krypts does too.

  • Stockhausen

    I will listen to this at a later hour and let you know if I hate you.

  • Death

    I like it.

  • I’ve been listening to country music most of the afternoon. When I clicked play this just about blew my speakers out. Also, “Arterial Mists of Doom” sounds like a Wu-Tang album.

    • Death

      Country???? Whyyyyyyy????

      • I’m white trash. Can’t help it.

        • Death

          Don’t call yourself trash. Would trash have an awesome site like this?

          • Hahaha, it’s a specific geographical/economical designation for folks from the Southern United States.

          • Death

            Don’t let those define you, define yourself. RISE FROM THE TRASH INTO GLORY!

          • Negrodamus

            That’s quite inspirational.

          • W.

            Basically, all of Texas bumpkins get lumped into that group.

        • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

          thought it was faux hipster libtard?

      • KJM

        Classic Country/Western is cool.

    • Negrodamus

      TIGER STYLE

      • KJM

        The game of Chess is like a sword fight. You must think first before you move.

        • Negrodamus

          when i was little my father was famous he was the greatest samurai in the empire he was the shoguns decapitator he cut off the heads of 130 lords it was a bad time for the empire

          • who would win in a fight between pops and Conan?

          • Death

            Conan always wins.

          • Negrodamus

            I’m at work so forgive me if I should know what you’re talking about… pops?

            vs. Conan the King of Cimmeria?!

          • your father vs. Conan the Motherfucking King!!

          • Negrodamus

            Oh, lol. What I was quoting was from Gza’a album Liquid Swords (and they took it from some movie), but I’d still have to say Conan I swear it by CROMM.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            …………………….

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            you are the most trusted friend of Conan, the man with the most deadly bow in the land, and who saved me from the tree of Woe.
            You are Subotai !

          • …and you are my security for when those MS trolls come after us turds!

  • Randall Thor

    I want that face to be above my couch in my living room.

    • Death

      I want you to be on my bed in my bedroom.

  • Gorgasm

    Sounds good.

    On the note of the “of Doom” I had a group together for like two weeks and we called ourselves “The Flavor of Doom”

    No one came to our shows/jams.

    • Death

      I would’ve if I were there.

    • Tyree

      I want a taste of “The Flavor of Doom”.

    • mmmm. You can really taste the doom!

    • Gorgasm

      We covered this one.

    • KJM

      Mmmm…apocalyptic…

    • old_man_doom

      As someone who has an intimate relationship with the word “Doom,” I approve of this. Your jam group sounds like a funk band whose guitarist listens to Thergothon every day.

      • Xan

        I approve of your disqus picture. Bruce Campbell is the man.

        • old_man_doom

          Groovy

  • Mother Shabubu III

    “Aterial Mists of Doom”

    What the fuck does that even mean? Mists of doom inside arteries?

    • Death

      Don’t question it, just feel it.

    • I believe it to be a reference to the delicious red spray that would vent from a punctured carotid artery. Which causes doom.

  • Scrimm

    Yesssss I’ve been waiting for this.

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    What is it with the four-eyes?

    • Tyree

      Good shit man!

  • Xan

    I just finished recorded some shitty rock songs that my friend and I do for fun and forgot that I had to turn my headphones way the fuck up. My ears are happy and bleeding at the same time.

  • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

    ………..

    • Scrimm

      I’m gonna do this from now on.

  • NefariousDude

    Lost it at “which I have a little bit of experience with as a married man/cat owner.”

    • NefariousDude

      ALSO THIS SONG KICKS ASS
