Suffering Hour - In Passing Ascension CD
As a title, In Passing Ascension is thus apt. There's something elusively transcendent about the sonic wormholes SUFFERING HOUR create here, something that sounds plucked effortlessly from the ether whilst being grounded in the dirt and grime and filth of the earth - and, surely, the foundation of death metal itself. It's a sensation of floating across suspended terra firma, as paradoxical as that may read on paper. For verily, SUFFERING HOUR have mastered the art of extremes: melodicism vs. miasma, space vs. swarm, tech vs. hypnosis, osmosis vs. disintegration, death metal as art vs. death metal as death metal.
