From the cold confines of Reykjavík, Iceland comes the molten fuzz/psyche doom of MORPHOLITH and their April EP offering, “Void Emissions“.
In this three track movement, MORPHOLITH unleash a brazen, massive avalanche of crushing riffs and tempo diverse output. While rooted in traditional doom at its core, the EP does cater to some progressive metal elements amid its exuding despair.
There is utterly oppressive hopelessness expounded upon in the opening song “Chronolust”, yet that is but a taste of what this band can do. Second number “Misanthrope” is a slow oozing tar of downtuned density and low end shuddering. It engulfs you within its horrific confines as the rhythmic pulses batter you senseless, all while the tortured vocals lament an expressive grief.
Third and final song, “Voidwalker“, is an almost 12 and a half minutes of pure, unfiltered aural totality where MORPHOLITH unleash everything in their arsenal. Killer riffs rife with groove and lethal tone are expelled as the vocals, some clean, others anguished, guttural screams, bemoan a most hellish feel. Varying tempo changes throughout the track help fuel the myriad states of morosity within this song, same as the others, and ultimately, MORPHOLITH itself.
