Deathspell Omega "Drought" LP
The Earth is shaking once again in France. It's only been two (pretty damn meager) years since the French progressive black metal act Deathspell Omega (abbreviated as DsO) fired up the scene with Paracletus, their sixth and most devastating take on the genre yet. This masterful record was created mostly by the band carefully refining their trademark sound which consists of a very dense, heavy atmosphere being fused with strong, technical instrumentation. This led, as said, to devastating results but also raised the bar for the quality of the band's future recordings to a nearly unattainable level. Now, DsO wouldn't be DsO if they wouldn't keep finding new ways to expand upon their sound without betraying its core elements. And so, after those two long years of waiting for a new round of soul-crushing tunes, they finally released their new EP Drought, which marks another important turning point in the developing of the band's sound.
