CVLTNation premieres shattering track by French Doom/Sludge outfit SUBTERRAEN

Beyond the comforts we surround ourselves with in our everyday lives, there are infinite pressures and gravitations that hold everything together on this ginormous planet. Lest you forget that there is yet an universe of rotting, seething energy all around that still continually eats away, French blackened sludge/doom metal band Subterraen are rolling out “Rotten Human Kingdom”, a monumental full-length composed of odes to these very subduing forces. CVLT Nation premiered their colossal Wrath Of  A Downtrodden Planet track from the album, that you can check and marvel at for yourself  AT THIS LINK. An excerpt –

“cvltThis track resonates with the sheer weight of the planet we cling to; the melancholy groans of continental shift and timeless rumbling of unseen caverns, the screams of the wind writhing around the planet as it moves”

– “not an album for beginners” – Dioses Del Metal (Spain) 8/10

– “hook listeners with their unique brand of depressive psychedelia” – Antichrist Magazine (Ukraine)

– “a  very powerful  sound” – Dark Doom Grind Death 8/10

Subterraen (France) – Rotten Human Kingdom (November 20th, 2020)

Release Date – November 20th, 2020
Record Label – Transcending Obscurity Records

For fans of -Eremit, Jupiterian, Lurk, Eyehategod, Neurosis, 71TonMan, Conan, Primitive Man 

French sludge/doom metal band Subterraen carry the torch of the style on the label, following the ponderous steps of the giants Eremit and Jupiterian. In comparison however, they add their own blackened grit and weighed down heaviness to the proceedings, crafting 10+ minute songs narrating epic, anguish-ridden tales of the slow destruction of the planet and sowing seeds of the inexorable vengeance of mother nature. The emotions are palpable not only in the harrowing cries of the vocalist but also from the palpitating, heaving music that functions as the body of this ancient beast. There is an honest rawness to it all and a dank, earthly vibe that resonates with the sandalwood fragrance emanating from the physical products, with a wooden, coffin-shaped box to go with it. From ashes to ashes, from dust to dust.
