Sporae Autem Yuggoth - ...However It Still Moves


The South American death doom scene has been a monster for years now, and Spora Autem Yuggoth have been a veritable force in the past few years for those in the know. Their debut full length ...However It Still Moves is a wonderfully creepy and cinematic death doom offering that provides transcendence and speaks to the wonderful darkness of this music. There is something beautifully transcendent, about the music and the bottom scraping heaviness that the band present here. This is death doom done right, and certain to drag you to hell. 

Sporae Autem Yuggoth manage to showcase their impressive songwriting abilities and conjure up scenes of wonderfully grim sub-equatorial darkness on this record. The use of synths and melodic guitar lines come together to give the band a unique sound universe that really feels vast. Listeners can hear these soundscapes unfold before them and get a sense that they are tapped into something darker and more transcendent. One finds that you're lost on a blasted heath, everywhere you look only more devastation. The wonderful intricacies of the album shine and leave listeners in awe of the darkness that they present before us. 

...However It Still Moves is an impressive first album from a group whose potential has been known for years. There's something fascinating about what Sporae Autem Yuggoth have crafted here and it feels like they are going to be a fitting addition to the always interesting Chilean death doom scene. This is a crusher and a record that is going to merit multiple listens. The guitar tones are great, the songs are epic and the vibes are on point. Death doom is an enthralling genre for a reason and Sporae Autem Yuggoth understand this as well as anyone.

Pre-order the album!
