Suddenly, this album appeared in my inbox, something I could have never expected. Not that I minded, on the very contrary. I quickly downloaded it, fed it to my media machine and allowed myself to bask in the thick, torpid doom that this act produces so well. 'AnteMortem' brings four tracks, two of them being massive funeral doom anthems, lasting over twenty minutes while the other two take up about ten.
The key ingredients are all here. Atmospheric keyboards, sluggish guitars and huge ambient passages. Fans of acts like Evoken, Shape Of Despair and Esoteric will easily embrace this album. Opener 'Before' is - in my opinion - even better than 'Missing'. In fact, the whole album shows an artist that managed to grow, improve and thrive in a genre with strict boundaries. Of course, this one comes highly recommended. 2017 is definitely going to be a Belgian year!!!
