Thematically doom metal usually deals with feelings of misery , solitude and desolateness.
As you might have guessed, this German outfit is primarily focused on somewhat more venereal topics. They’re not newcomers to th scene though, but have earned their stripes in the solid death doom of Ophis and the filthy black of Fäulnis. Now considering their subject matter you might think they would try and outdo acts like Funeralium or Bethlehem in sonic extremity, but nothing could be further from the truth. ‘The Lecherous Liturgies’ is a collection of straight from the heart, undiluted, traditional epic doom metal in the vein of Candlemass or Trouble and a good collection at that. Their tongue in cheek lyrics go hand in hand with lovingly crafted classic riffing and wailing vocals. If you were to describe it through one image, this small EP is the musical equivalent of that notoriously naughty cover on the old Witchfinder General album and in all honesty, they already had me sold from the start with their ludicrously funny Mayhem parody band moniker.
