Taphos – Come Ethereal Somberness (2018)

Was given a download link to this stormer of an album when I got some cassettes from Dissicated Productions. Taphos has a mankin’ logo, but the tunes are a bit more polished than the image. Well-rounded, death-inspired metal is the order of the day. There’s a small amount of pomp, but this is curtailed by a sprawling undercurrent of darkness to the writing and to the music itself. If you like your death metal a bit more brooding, and a bit more sinister, you wouldn’t go far wrong in checking out Come Ethereal Somberness.
