SLOUGH OF DESPAIR - Announce Release Of Debut Album On CD, Available For Streaming In Full

Greek doom/death metallers Slough Of Despair will release their debut album, Catacombs Of Terror, on CD via Chaos Records in conspiracy with Personal Records on 26th February. The album was previously released digitally in April 2020 and then on cassette format in July 2020. Slough Of Despair formed in 2018 after guitarist Panos L. split from Ordeal and began to write the first demo with vocalist Babis G. and drummer Dimitris S. Later, Kostas V. took over on vocals, and the band was fleshed out with second guitarist Giannis T. and bassist Nick C.

With their line-up thus complete, Slough Of Despair recorded their debut album in January 2020. Aptly titled Catacombs Of Terror, this seven-song/42-minute monolith is suffocating to behold. Devastatingly crushing whilst eerily atmospheric, Slough Of Despair uphold their moniker through an ominously lumbering, oft-ritualistic strain of doom-death.

Slough Of Despair mesmerizes with malevolently melodic twists that take their time to develop but deliver a bountiful payoff. Patience thus rewards those willing to step fully into these Catacombs Of Terror. You can hear the entire album in the Bandcamp player below. Link
