ANNIHILATION RITE – WORLD BELOW (Review by Varg The Mighty )


Today’s review is of German One-Man Death Doom Metal band Annihilation Rite’s debut album.

This release consists of 4 long tracks of punishing Doom brought to its most obscure and cathartic extreme, which sometimes implements some chaotic auras that remind of Portal, with some parts approaching Black Metal too. This combination offers a cohesive mix of Metal’s darkest genres, invoking demise in a sublime way.

This hellish distortion and these repetitive riffs will lead the listener into a slow and excruciating death. The full-length’s approach is definitely one that begs to be further explored in order to produce more oppressive pieces of aphotic Extreme Metal. My personal highlights are “The Abyss” and the title track.

I recommend this album to fans of Death Doom Metal and Blackened Doom Metal. My rating is of 9,5/10.
