Void Rot - Descending Pillars

It's been two long years since we last heard from Void Rot, the Minnesota death doom band who had the potential to change the game. Now they are back with their first full length and holy crap - these guys might actually do it. Descending Pillars is an absolutely monolithic record. The bands crushing wall of sound approach and the indomitable slaughter of their rhythm section makes for some extremely compelling listening. They have crafted an offering that torments the listener, drives towards the soul and hints at much more to come.

Usually in the world of death-doom bands really lean to one side or another of the genre. Part of what makes Void Rot so interesting is their ability to in fact nicely straddle the twin worlds of death and doom metal. Descending Pillars continually impresses with the breadth of what is being done here. In particular the wonderfully ominous drums on a track like album opener 'Descending Pillars' really lend a hellish aspect to the whole thing. To listen to this album is to feel yourself gradually going insane. To realize that you will be dragged into hell and forced to check on the bitter pill of unreality. Void Rot are going for a very specific sonic aesthetic and they nail it perfectly.

There is a lot to sink your teeth into on this record from the gorgeous guitar tones to the generally stellar execution of the songwriting. At only 37 minutes, Void Rot nicely avoid the classic mistake of getting overambitious. Instead they have unleashed something that is a perfect concise summation of their junta against the world. It's a domineering offering that will leave you in awe - a devastating reminder of how tormented this reality really can be. Descending Pillars is just the first step and I think this band is about to get a whole lot more intense.

  1. Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Edes herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past 3 years but Dr Edes cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from Herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs, Thanks. Write him on WhatsApp on +2348151937428. @dr_edes_remedies deals with

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR.
