The Slow Dying Of The Great Barrier Reef
DRY COUGH Doom-laden duo sound an aquatic tone of alarm While fools in power reject the concept of global warming, it’s encouraging to see the likes of Gojira and Architects highlighting the damage we’re doing to the environment. You can add Nottingham drone/doom duo Bismuth to the growing list of concerned metal artists, as their second fulllength’s title and concept couldn’t be any blunter. Musically, their incremental subsonic bass swells and reverberations, skittering cymbal crashes and aqueous vocal coos give way to discordant heaviness when the volume increases on the 30-plus minute title track, mimicking the erosion of a fragile ecosystem. Weltschmerz, meanwhile, nails the point through its toxic sludgedoom destruction.
