A versatile, but solid funeral doom record.
The Drowning far exceeded my expectations.
The kind of record that will make you notice a band you’d never heard of, and fall right into their world.
Encoffination is an acquired taste.
Vergence will find a home in any death-doom fan’s collection.
A full remix that likely won’t supersede the original, but still gives it justice while presenting the album in a new light.
Everything here has been done better by countless other bands.
Atavisma have a tremendous album in The Chthonic Rituals, as it shows a young band with boundless potential and a great sound.
A nearly flawless, near-perfectly executed Blackened beauty, guaranteed to have you coming back for more.
Like a fine wine, the band’s genius has only grown with time.
