The first release of the catalan label Cain Records took place last year with this split, entitled “III Psalms Of Doom”. An underground relase, of quite limited print run, but in an interesting and not much common format, (CD in DVD case with booklet), that shows an hand full of songs that reflects well what is done at the level of sonorities like Drone, Funeral Doom and Sludge all over the world, nowadays.
The first moments of this work were handed to the dutch band Sunneater, who plays a mixture of Drone/Doom without great news, but competently. For between “The Call” and “Slow Disintegration”, it finds the brutish and painful mesh that is “March Of The Sun”, with the voice remembering, vaguely, Scott Kelly, from Neurosis. A good song, black, heavy, monolithic, claustrophobic and discordant – on the positive way, of course - of the first one. It advances without contemplations up of “Slow Disintegration”, in a perfect socket, like if we were listening only one theme. It is here that there are the best moments of the band, where the Drone occupies a more secondary space but it is able to tally more dynamic to the sound of these dutch project.(12/20)
Playing practically at home, General Winter has here their first song in a record; it is “Stones”, a long one of eighteen minutes mammoth that, in the continuation of the previous dose, it directs us to quite arid lands, serving of resonant soundtrack for a travel for inhospitable and sterile places, where, from nowhere, appears Abel's voice, disturbing and rough, blistering the discomfort of the travel. There are not great rhythmical variations along this theme, except in the middle where things turn a little bit faster, or great work in the creation of the most complex musical structures. General Winter serve everything naked and raw, without contemplations. And they do it well. (13/20)
The, also, catalans Destino/Entierro close this split with four songs loaded of rotten and harmful Sludge Doom, mixed with a very raw feeling. The sound of their songs is evident, with na average production that increases such vein. It seems that the songs appear in crescendo of weight and hardness, beating us without a second to rest until ' Drugod ' goes out in the columns, exhausted, since the powerful begining with ' Prelude '. Despite all of that, it is noticed that the songs still need more work so that they become more exciting and able to provide another visibility to this project. (11/20)
