Appartition - Feel
California death metal band Apparition follow their Granular Transformation 7-inch with their tectonic shifting debut album Feel. This is towering, progressive doomy-death metal with hammering colossal, crawling, groove-refined escalating riffs and lurching, thick, and bludgeoning calculated rhythms. But Feel goes even more beyond in exploring Apparition’s death metal blueprint, where this deep expression possesses idiosyncratic, uncanny musical affectations with calculated, complex ambience. One that tethers into the realms of strangeness and the anomalous: an album a little more influenced by drummer / vocalist Andrew and guitarist Miles’ past jazz studies and unique influences outside the old school death metal paradigm.
