Two hardcore bands from Southeast Asia drop one long, sludgy song a piece. Pazahora add ominous black metal to their crust and bring to mind One Eyed God Prophecy or Union Of Uranus. Their song ends with an acoustic break and a sound bite from the documentary One Nation under Lee, about Singapore’s first prime minister. Their liner notes and lyrics discuss violence in Singapore, which has the highest execution rate in the world. Ghaust’s track is a terrific doomy instrumental companion. Nicely designed packaging with handmade flourishes.
