Romasa - Insufferable Cave Of Rotting Aspiration


Primitive, crushing and loud. These are the things that define the oeuvre of Romasa. Their brand new EP, Insufferable Cave Of Rotting Aspiration is stripped back, bare and wonderfully twisted. This is not a record that leans on creativity, but rather pummeling riffs. Toss in an interesting five minute noise interlude and you've got yourself an EP that could very well be the birth of the next New School OSDM band to take the country by storm. Featuring members of Ossacrux, Torture Garden, and Witch Burial, you know that their unique mix of sludge, death metal and crust punk will go straight for the gut.

Insufferable Cave Of Rotting Aspiration ties right into the genre tropes, but that's why it rules. Romasa have found an exciting way to bring in a variety of influences into an old school death metal soundscape, crafting something heavier punkier and a good bit more evil than many of their peers. The tormented screams on a track like 'Formulaic Decay' are wonderfully crusty, reminiscent of bands like Tragedy. Their generally tormented approach is stunning. Few bands I think really get the same sense of crushing despair and gut wrenching heaviness that these guys lean into. The riffs are simply monolithic, and when underscored with a very open drum sound you've got something special going. 

See - that's the thing. For Romasa, despite a general lack of production and some rather simplistic approaches, they are actually able to continually impress. Why? Because they understand the simple magic of extreme metal. They don't rely on frills or unique ideas. Instead they just want to crush your fucking skull in because they're a bunch of angry dudes who have been playing shows in basements their whole lives. Insufferable Cave Of Rotting Aspiration is a devastating listen and it will beat your skull in. Ready for the slaughter?
