Reissue of the debut self-titled release by The Slow Death with Aurora Australis. Crushingly slow and torturous Death / Doom metal with members from Murkrat and Mournful Congregation.
The album ranges from Funeral Doom influenced tracks with gravelly male vocals and brutal slow guitar riffs contrasted by ethereal female vocals, to more contemporary Death / Doom incorporating more melody and reaching near mid-tempo pace.
Prominent keyboards add an eerie atmosphere to the release which is heavy and depressive throughout, though with enough variation to keep you listening to the bitter endů
