Asunder/Like Flies on Flesh - Split CD (CD)
Catalog number: LIFE 012
Asunder is a doom metal band from Oakland, CA that belt out thick, heavy, slow jams of monstrous proportions. This debut release features 2 songs of crushing thunderous doom, with sullen guitar hooks and gargantuan vocals. Musically influenced by My Dying Bride, Anathema, Cathedral and Candlemass.
Like Flies on Flesh from Fort Worth, TX can best be described to the uninitiated, as an unholy union of At the Gates and "Killers" era Iron Maiden. Dueling guitar hero war harmonies and chainsaw riffs abound. Vocals (male and female alike) alternate between sullen crooning and maniacal desperation. Well crafted songs punctuated with riff after riff of twisted melodies that will sear the flesh from your smoldering skull, and leave you weeping in a pool of your own meaningless.
