Title: Bacterium 'Sunt Lacrymae Rerum'
Post by: Eoin McLove on June 16, 2019, 04:25:24 PM
"As weak fancy doomers hide behind loud amps and posh pedals and drown in a meaningless stew of wizard bongery, Bacterium arrive like a ragged fist in the face,  proudly launching their existential threat upon the creaky wavelength of the abyss to claim and demolish the throne of funeral doom death.  As it was.  As it is.  As it ever will be.  Doom."

Music is sublime. Artwork an absolutely perfect match (great the way the border is cell-wall-like). But what's the above? Trying to instigate a doom-rap-battle? Should present yourselves as if into a void, not with critical reference to a scene you deem (largely correctly) to be irrelevant.

that sounds good but the production is way too murky for my liking.
who is doing the harsh vocals? they sound great.

The doom scene is very saturated with these sort of bands so something like this in a press release at least sets it apart as different. impossible to find good new doom that isnt just stoner blues.

It comes across as petty to me. In short, it's a self-description that would not endear me, personally, to check out a new band, and as an approach it's banal compared to the uniqueness of the music and aesthetic. Anyway, Andy won't mind me saying this; he's forever giving young bands image advice  :abbath: :abbath: :abbath:

It's definitely a very Andy press release I think we can all agree, haha! Seems to be a strict no gig/no interview policy too which is interesting. Total primitivism.

Deadly stuff altogether. Love the clangy, "coming from the other side of a church" drum production. Really digging the artwork too.

Nice & lovley stuff. Will be picking it up. Also a fan of the press release.

There will be a vinyl edition released through Fuck Yoga and Heavenly Vault early next year.   No wimp will be spared.

This is savage but I need to listen to it on something that's not my phone to get the full whack.  Excited to hear more.

Nice one. Just to clear up any possible confusion,  originally Fuck Yoga were to release a noble CD edition in September but have decided to do elitist vinyl instead which won't be ready until early 2020. Unless another CD or tape offer comes in in the mean time no poser crushing physical edition will be loosed upon the weak until the new year.  Praise be, wimps.

Indeed. And now back to the doom.

Looks like this is finally set to be released at the end of this month.  We have a handful of copies that will be available from the bandcamp. Should be more than enough for the local funeral doom contingent.

Also,  despite being listed as a two song EP on Metal Archives,  it's actually a four song album.

Brilliant, was wondering when it was coming.

Yep,  vinyl only at the minute.  If offers for CD and tape come in then they'll be looked at.

Originally this was delayed due to Ivan from Fuck Yoga being snowed under with his label and other commitments. Now our old pal Corona has added another spanner into proceedings. Macedonia has been on lockdown for the past few weeks meaning the label has ground to a halt so we'll have to wait and see what happens. The course of true doom never does run smooth.

Coincidentally, after I posted the above I received an email from Droll Meadow, who did the artwork. Mr. Meadow is starting up a tape label called Odd Memory and has asked to release a tape edition of 'Sunt Lacrymae Rerum' with new artwork. I can't say exactly when it will happen in the current circumstances but it will follow the LP.

Tape release would be savage...

Be looking forward to that tape, aye they don't even have the post goin in Macedonia, had things ordered of him..

Given these two tracks a listen again CD would be savage :)

Nice one. There are two more songs on the album as well that throw in a few more surprises. I'd like to get it out on CD so we'll see if an offer comes in.

September release is the new plan. The course of doom is doomed.

I took a listen to this today and it was much more varied than I would have thought from the description. It was crying out for gang vocals though. There was actually a bit towards the end of the second track which was almost approaching gang vox and all. Joking aside, I thought it was interesting stuff.
Title: Re: Bacterium 'Sunt Lacrymae Rerum'
Post by: Eoin McLove on July 07, 2020, 06:43:08 AM
Cheers. There are two more songs on the album that we haven't uploaded yet.  The last song has some gang screams which is sort of similar ;)
