Arising from the murky depths to present you with a sound that is overall anvil heavy and as filled with grime as you could possibly imagine is Thra. Within their new offering Gardens of Rot you can come to expect four tracks of nothing but buzzing sludge with hints of death metal here and there for complete flesh shredding misery. Ever mired in filth and sludge, Thra offer up four cohesive and well rounded tracks that come bulldozing through your speakers from the very first second onward. Thra marches forth at a plodding pace, ever dragging you asunder in to the depths.
Gardens of Rot is a sonic assault from beginning to end, never letting you rest or take breather as Thra seamlessly transition from one track to the next, forever burying you underneath their malicious murky sound. Riddled with malevolence, death and misery, Thra marches onward never to relent in their menacing assault. From one track to the next you come face to face with plodding sludge and when needed Thra greets you with frenetic death metal to gnaw and tear away at your flesh. Each of the four offerings within this release are as terrorizing and menacing as the last, making this effort to be an all out aural assault.
With buzzing riffs, bone cracking drumming and insane unearthly vocals that transition between throat shredding lows and raspy screams, you are treated to an accosting listen. Without so much as a second between tracks you quickly become submerged and trapped within the thunderous wall of sound that Thra emits. Never does the barrage end and never does it cease as each cut is just as shredding as the last.
As a whole, Gardens of Rot is a well put together, well constructed and well performed offering that treats you to four great tracks one right after the next. Without filler, without gimmicks, without fluff, Thra presents to you an excellent release, one that sticks to your ribs and infects your mind with the murkiest of sludge. This is a malevolent creation, one that brings forth death, disease and terror all within four great tracks.
Gardens of Rot will be released through Camo Pants Records March 15, 2019.
