DISEMBOWELMENT - "TRANSCENDENCE INTO THE PERIPHERAL" LP
Extraordinary. “Transcendence Into The Peripheral” is diSEMBOWELMENT’s only full length album and irrefutably one of the greatest metal records to ever come from Australia. It still does not get any better than this. A towering monolith and clear landmark in the genre (bearing in mind that clear genre definitions and sub genres weren’t so firm at the time but essentially what we’re talking about here is SLOW and HEAVY). While the album was released in 1993, the band was formed years priors, yet even by the time it came out there were still scant examples of Death and Doom metal being blended; it was this masterpiece that shaped and went on to define what the Death/Doom sound is. Foregoing much of the rock and punk templates of songwriting which most death metal (and metal music in general) had based itself on until that point, diSEMBOWELMENT crafted songs which were more mature and akin to traditional music and experimental soundscape. Evoking cold, sparse, brooding, ritual atmospheres they somehow more closely resembled the second wave of European Black Metal which was emerging around the same time. Beyond their significance in the timeline of the vast underworld that is extreme metal, it simply must be said; diSEMBOWELMENT rules. There still aren’t many groups who would (or could) so brilliantly play clean, slow guitar movements over blast beat drums at a peculiar, hypnotic pace before landing one of the most crushing blows in anyone’s music collection, all within around fifty seconds into the opening track. The genius is beyond remark and the music is absolutely inviolate. Revelling in the majesties of sorrow, despair and isolation rarely feels as wonderfully exalting as it does here. Transcendence indeed.
