The past two+ decades of the genre see it move into deeper, darker, morbidly murky, atmospheric and foreboding territory, often blurring the lines with black or doom or both together. This has also been achieved through dissonance and flirtations with noise and the avant garde, i.e. Chaos Echoes, Gorguts, Portal et al. Globally, death metal is now as far flung as Russia, New Zealand and Indonesia.
Apologies for the week long delay - we were incapacitated by the death desert-like heat that consumed the Pacific Northwest at the end of June, so progress was very slow on this episode. Things have subsided to a tolerable level, fortunately, and Santa brought a new portable AC to our door so DJ Foxy Noxy and I have survived and thrived! Thanks for your patience and enjoy.
