Aseethe/Snow Burial Split
Midwestern doom rockers Aseethe team up with Chi-town post-metaliers Snow Burial for a short but hard-hitting split tape. Hold on to your butts for this one because it’s one hell of a ride!
Aseethe mires you in the sludge of doom and despair with the slow and heavy throb of bass, guitar and drums congealing into a swampy morass; a morass that slowly smothers and suffocates any remaining hope in your soul. The vocals shift between sub-bass growls and shrill, hellish shrieks-both equally soul crushing. A surprise near the end awaits you that will completely submerge you in the mire of your own failings.
Snow Burial scorches Side B. The tempo picks up and the intensity in no way lessens. On Sever the Bloodline, they launch a full-frontal assault to your cochlea with a frenzied and raucous riff propelled by frenetic drumming and manic wails about well...severing the bloodline of course! They then about-face transition to a soft but driving post-rock interlude replete with fuzzed-out bass, picked-out guitar chords and an edgy but gentle warble from the singer. Tension swells, energy builds and then...
Well, I don’t want to give the whole show away!
Though only two tracks total, this split tape packs the punch of a proper EP. Let’s hope for more titanic team-ups from these two hard rock colossi. Although, I’m not sure if the earth could bear another monstrous mashup.
