…an entrancing, yet murky doomed out death metal sound, as if some horror of hell has managed to crawl forth from the sewers and is now hunting for flesh.
No one should ever dare question the might and sheer will of Craven Idol.
One of the best death doom albums you’ll hear this year and by far the best album of their career
Black metal band Thantifaxath explore further these possibilities of black metal, cloaking themselves to remain acutely dedicated to sound over visual aesthetic. Their music serves as a portal to something both bizarre and impenetrable which disorientates the listener consistently.
Long winded stories aside, and blackened references duly noted, have at least some faith in me that this is good. Oh so good.

Feral creation is called forth to drag the listener bodily into the filthy pits of void from which the band springs forth.
