PLAGUE ORGAN ‘Orphan’

Barbarous avant garde death metal

This Dutch duo’s forty minute guitar-less avant garde death metal track will attract and repel in equal measures. Yes, you read it right, that’s one track. Starting off as an archetypal unholy cacophony of barbarism, the track unfolds in waves of spiralling synths, murderous bass, and diabolical protracted grunts. Then, as the dust settles, there is a creeping feeling the whole track is decaying. Reaching the end is akin to standing in a petrified wooden cathedral.
