After a two year silence, Sulphurous are back with two new tracks that will be released on a 7" next month by MSUO. In preparation for their second full-length set for later this summer, Sulphurous return with a swift-yet-satisfying EP to whet appetites hungering for more malodorous death.
Thus, Encircling Darkness is likewise aptly titled, for its inexorable slipstream of tension & terror teases with no small amount of ceremony - almost ritualistic in one sense, cruelly haunting in others.
Indeed, its titular A-side sets the stage for that ceremony, but the opening peals of sorcerous feedback segueing into a slow-burning haunt that is the B-side "Unfathomable Display of Rotting Creation" truly displays Sulphurous’ mastery to come on that looming sophomore LP…
Patience may be a virtue, but all virtues can be defiled when Encircling Darkness!
1. Encircling Darkness
2. Unfathomable Display of Rotting Creation
