Style: heavy misanthropic funeral doom metal

three guys from a small Kaarina town near Turku, together with Unholy and Skepticism were shaping the funeral doom metal subgenre in very early nineties - the only six track opus [1994] was released posthumously, after the band decided to call it quits, but its significance is beyond limits; ill-natured, downtuned, cavernous and deadly sound reminds of a massive march of death, with ethereal touches reflecting on bleak, crushing despair and melancholy, backed up by clean and low creepy burping vocals, while its crawling pace sets a specific hazy, swampy, luring ambience - it is partly a result of limited skills and means available, but at the end of the day it turned into a beginning of something new and unique; recent British black 180g vinyl edition comes with a pro-printed lyric inner sleeve
