Isagoge I keep returning to this album. Many would describe it as "cavernous," "old school," etc. They wouldn't be wrong; yet here you'll also find plenty of hooks, doomy riffs and melody weaved effortlessly into thundering hymns. If you are a fan of Necrot's "Blood Offerings," you'll love this record.

Ippocalyptica Living Tomb is one of 2019’s best death metal albums, and this is beyond dispute. This is the latest high-quality exemplar of the old school death metal movement, and though it expertly combines death and doom metal in ways that Incantation mastered so long ago, it also features a cavernous production to rival the likes of Disma, making Living Tomb an immensely heavy and crushing experience. What makes this particularly special is its mastery of dynamics, with songs never remaining at the same tempo or treading the same melodic territory for too long, yet always remaining cohesive. There are also, for lack of a better term, psychedelic flourishes throughout the album that add an ethereal component to the atmosphere. I do not consider this to be as good or as original as Blood Incantation’s Starspawn, but as far as modern death metal goes, it is better than 98 percent of its competition. Enter the living tomb, and become one with Ossuarium.

about

To start the 2019 campaign off with continued crushing precedent, 20 Buck Spin introduces Portland’s Ossuarium and its debut album “Living Tomb”. Following on the heels of the widely hailed and brutal ‘Calcified Trophies Of Violence’ demo in 2017, Ossuarium’s first full length record reveals immediate maturation to ruinous and overwhelming effect.

A formidable Death/Doom monstrosity where devastating sonic bludgeoning gives way to writhing hallucinations of disemboweling transcendence, Ossuarium conveys the calamitous aura of still burdened souls agonizingly leaving the mortal coil to the region of final darkness and perpetual rot. Time melts away, colorless dreams turn to endless nightmares and the pillars of eternity tremble at the dreadful permanence of the “Living Tomb”.

In crafting its debut album Ossuarium creates a funereal rite of irrevocable passage to the other side. It does so with the grandiose power and putrid elegance of the best in the Death / Doom genre. The “Living Tomb” has opened to wrathful consequence and will never again rest in peace.
