twistedsonofwatson Absolute death. Total doom. Wading through this is an uncomfortable experience. Drown in their sodden landscapes. Favorite track: Screams and Lamentations drowned in the Empty of Silence.

Feyd77 Dark and forbidding. A slow path to crumbling bliss. Entrancing you in its smothering grip. Enthralling! Favorite track: In the Dark and Mournful Corner of Memory.

Tym(E))) (((M)achine Filthy death/doom worth your time. Can't say anything better about this than Mark Z. did at AMG. Check out the review at www.angrymetalguy.com/antichrist-pax-moriendi-review/

Matthew Toye Antichrist have been working on their first album for almost 14 years. That's a long ass wait. But packed into just five tracks, there's enough methodical, gloomy death doom that comes as the ultimate pay off. Favorite track: In the Dark and Mournful Corner of Memory.

about

IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Peru's ANTICHRIST, Pax Moriendi, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Formed in 2004 but not really kicking into recorded gear until a decade later, ANTICHRIST soon released a steady stream of demos between 2014 and 2016. Through this requisite underground graft, the trio studiously perfected their craft, shaping its huge 'n' haunting foundation - the doom-death trinity of Thergothon, Unholy, and Winter - into something qualitatively their own. And indeed, across the five-song/45-minute Pax Moriendi, the listener is taken down into sewers a mile deep (or more), tweaking that immortal doom-death schematic into something righteously foul and filthy but still well within the range of melancholic human experience. Crushing-yet-ethereal chords reverberate through the forlorn night, and ever deeper into one's worst corners of their subconscious; the attack is slow yet insistent early on, with the foulness and filth flung liberally, to either alienate part-timers or beckon the most intrepid of souls. Then, as the album plays on, Pax Moriendi reveals a wounded sort of slo-mo melody, a blanching vulnerability, shedding its layers of metaphysical/spiritual garbage for the laid-bare/laid-to-rest epiphany of climactic closer "You Will Never See Sun Light."

No, indeed you won't when faced with the enormity of ANTICHRIST's Pax Moriendi. Here is your funeral: welcome the end.
