Anguish – Mountain

Anguish – Mountain
Dark Descent Records – 2014
Metal, Doom
Rated: ***

Upssala, Sweden. Home of the doom metal quartet Anguish. Who released a true monumental doom album back in 2012 called Through the Archdemon’s Head. And now the follow-up is about to be set free upon the world. It is called Mountain and it definitely sounds huge. After a slow and atmospheric intro the music kicks in with powerful and grandiose gestures. And this goes on for the remaining seven tracks. With aggressive and taunting vocals; they slowly turn a bit more occult as the music plows on up towards the top of the mountain. Slowly the trek becomes windswept and cold as the rain hammers down and only lightning illuminates the way. The guitar colors turn icy and the drums become like the every growing thunder. And there is no refuge on the top either. There is only the void and the snow that pierces the soul…
