When was the last time you felt the angst of submerging yourself in a musical experience that took chunks of your soul away? Been a while? Well, French blackened sludge/doom metal band Subterraen are pretty keen on reminding you how little you actually know of the feeling anyway, with the release their of their diabolical full length, 'Rotten Human Kingdom'. If you like the musical stylings of bands such as Eremit and Jupiterian, this is a band you must definitely acquaint yourself with, and the album is something to surely keep a look out for. You could check out their track here on Bandcamp and here on YouTube.

French sludge/doom metal band Subterraen carry the torch of the style on the label, following the ponderous steps of the giants Eremit and Jupiterian. In comparison however, they add their own blackened grit and weighed down heaviness to the proceedings, crafting 10+ minute songs narrating epic, anguish-ridden tales of the slow destruction of the planet and sowing seeds of the inexorable vengeance of mother nature. The emotions are palpable not only in the harrowing cries of the vocalist but also from the palpitating, heaving music that functions as the body of this ancient beast. There is an honest rawness to it all and a dank, earthly vibe that resonates with the sandalwood fragrance emanating from the physical products, with a wooden, coffin-shaped box to go with it. From ashes to ashes, from dust to dust.
