This past Friday, September 14th, saw the German band PRAISE THE PLAGUE unleash their six-song début, ‘Antagonist‘, via Black Omega Recordings.
On it, the band has created an unholy blessing of black metal-infused death-sludge with rippling atmospheric nuances. It transmits ominous vibes in its caustic contents, such that screams “something wicked this way comes”… and its name be PRAISE THE PLAGUE!
True, it is a bit on the low-fidelity side of the production spectrum, but damn, it more than works to the guys’ advantage on ‘Antagonist‘. Riff Relevant is pleased to share a stream of the album here today, while it’s available to purchase HERE.
