AM is such a nice guy (He’s very friendly and pretty good at English), but his raw funeral doom isn’t for the feint of heart. It literally sounds like someone dying in agony which par for the course for raw/bm/dsbm, but this is just a different level of assault on your ears and senses. He’s extremely secretive and doesn’t have an IG like say No Point in Living’s Yu.
Listening to this it’s a lot more in the style of 2nd wave bm than his earlier work which is much more blackened death doom I guess you’d say.
