MOSS return with their debut full length, 'Cthonic Rites'. A mighty slab of extreme Doom from beyond, a paean to the Elder Gods.
Managing to pack two entire tracks into the 66 minutes, MOSS redefine torturous with a larger, more cosmically heavy sound with Jus Oborn (of Doom masters ELECTRIC WIZARD) taking production duties. Though each track retains the monolithic simplicity of a Martian pyramid, the production somehow increases the scope of the trademark MOSS wall of distortion and despair. Who dares to dream what dark Old Ones may be summoned from beyond the realms of time and death by these primitive, obscene dirges?
MOSS was formed in Southampton in mid-2001 by three sick individuals, wishing to propagate their dementia and macabre visions via the medium of discordant, torturous extreme Doom metal.
Bound by hatred, disgust and despair, MOSS create the heaviest and most tormenting extreme doom in existence. An expression of horrific bleakness and mind-numbing desolation through otherworldly odes to madness, H.P.Lovecraft, and altered states. This is the band's second release for Aurora Borealis.
