Héctor Hurtado Grooscors This EP contains some of the most powerful songs Majestic Downfall have recorded over the years. These 3 songs are worth the price of admission. On the other hand, Aussie band The Slow Death delivers 3 songs inspired by the early Gothic/Doom bands, with similarities to Theatre of Tragedy early catalog, specially in the development of slow tunes with combined death growls and female vocals

xhrl_ Such an exceptional split! I can't recommend this highly enough. The Mexican black/death doom band MD dazzles us with their beautiful melodies and heavy bluesy riffs. If you dig atmospheric metal or psychedelic stoner metal, this should be on your stream. MD's rhythms just pound a listener into sand. The Oz band Slow Death are serious doom players with one of the most haunting doom female vocalists this side of Jex or Dorthia. An amazing split that deserves more attentive listeners! Serious wow! Favorite track: MD - The Dark Lullaby.

about

Six new tracks (three from each band) totaling over 67 minutes of Doom Metal in the best form..

Majestic Downfall, one of Mexico's best current bands, is ready with three new songs that are among the band's heaviest and finest. This Doom Metal band uses Death Metal influences to enhance the music while retaining the fragile melodies that are enthralling. The music represents a dichotomy between personal emotions and the harsh external realities of life - Majestic Downfall covers them all.

The Slow Death from Australia also contributes three new tracks to this epic split release. Like Majestic Downfall, The Slow Death offers something different, something refreshing in a sense while retaining the depressive Doom Metal sound. What’s remarkable is the weird, eerie singing of Mandy of Murkrat fame, exacerbating the soul-tearing emotions and melodies that are deceptively beautiful.
