LOWEST, THE: Doomed: LP

“Doomed” is about as accurate a description for this record as could be conjured. Screamed in English, this Polish band brings the heavy on this bleak, dissonant slab of doomcore. With just as much in common with a band like Triptykon as with Amebix, the darkness is relentless, perhaps even more dreadful with the slower tempos. Records like this are not for the weak of heart, but if—like me—bleak music helps exorcise those negative feelings that reside in all of us, Doomed is certainly worth exploring. –Chad Williams (Pasazer, pasazer.pl)
