Rippikoulu - Musta seremonia (1993)Release ID: 3428
A chimeric melding of death doom and death metal that has got to be one of the heaviest records I've ever heard. Reminds me quite a bit of Winter's awesome Into Darkness (recorded three years after that 1990 classic, I'd be very surprised if these Finns had never heard it prior to recording this). Recorded originally as a demo, the sound is down and dirty, only adding to the excruciatingly weighty atmosphere. If you've any time at all for punishingly heavy music, then this is a required listen.
