Floating through the hollow with gritty screams, grimy vocals and hallowed sighs. Underground rapids on occasion by the crashing drums and stomping basswork. It all festers and bubbles in earth worn recesses where gaseous swamps that survived the onslaught of torrential drips. The atmosphere oozes ancient and beautiful dark and intensely raw nature. With an ever present ominous force dwelling there…
