Crushing Blackened Doom delicatessen. Hailing from Portland, OR., Lowered rised mysteriously from the shadows and crafted one beast of a debut album. Digital album out now, vinyl LP will follow.

— RYAN LIPINSKY (Unearthly Trance / The Howling Wind / Force & Fire / Serpentine Path, etc.) —
The highlight here is the excellent frozen guitar parts that really pull all the elements together. Good ugly recording with proper low end and to sum up: 2 thumbs up from me!

LISTEN & SUPPORT HERE: https://thronerecords.bandcamp.com/album/lowered

Name your price – DONATE AS YOU WILL AND DIRECTLY SUPPORT LOWERED AND THRONE RECORDS TO KEEP ON RECORDING AND RELEASING BRAND NEW GREAT MUSIC.

First review have started to sprout:

_ CVLT NATION _
Hailing from the always intriguing and ever-changing pool of dark sonic exploration that one can always find thriving and growing in Portland, OR, LOWERED are a dismally dark and bleak death-doom/blackened crust band who’s about to release their harrowingly dense and shapeshifting self-titled debut album through Spain’s Throne Records. With lyrics dealing with societal collapse, the inclination of humanity towards its own destruction, and themes of survival and darkness snaking throughout the music, Lowered have painted a sonic palette of dismal intensity. Their songs are sewn together by a cascading rainfall of implausibly austere and implacable riffs and by a deluge of solemn and ruinous atmospheres that envelop the listener like a fog, yielding similar moods as seen in bands like Thou, Dead To A Dying World, Fall of Efrafa and Lycus. Keep an eye out for tapes, CDs, and vinyl to hit the shelves soon through Throne Records.

Thanks.
It's still some months left, during summer most probably.

Got me curious... could you please let me know which other bands used that same painting as cover art? It's important.

Thank you very much, I wasn't aware of that.
I'll forward it to the band.

Shiru, I forwarded your research to Lowered.
They assured to me the is that Greek band who don't own the art.

The artist gave Lowered rights and permission, and sent them the art himself so there's no issue there.

I'm in charge of layouting/finishing the artwork for the printers, and can assure that too, since the pieces the band owns are high resolution/size scans from the original canvas.
