Of Feather And Bone – Sulphuric Disintegration (2020)

Released on the 13th of November, 2020 by Profound Lore Records.

Luckily there is a post on the Metal Archives forum that describes my feeling towards this release with an uncanny sense of accuracy – Link

One of the many bands on Profound Lore/Relapse/Prosthetic that I listen to and think, are they really doing anything unique? The single is pretty solid and ripping, but at the same time it feels like this style is reaching Cascadian Black Metal in 2012 levels of oversaturation. Maybe I’m missing something but it just feels like there are a thousand bands in the US alone doing this exact same thing with only the tiniest differences (OSDM but fast! OSDM but super slow! OSDM but slightly more technical!) and it’s starting to wear me out.

You know what, the atmosphere is great, the execution is fantastic, the production is kickass, then why am I not feeling anything more after the initial euphoria died down? It’s perhaps the same thing done to death before and is now being done slightly better. Make no mistake, I would see this band on stage without a second thought because this is clearly music to be enjoyed in a pub with friends. Otherwise, everything sounds alright but nothing seems memorable. Allow me to rectify that line, the drumming and the vocals on this album are top notch! Really well done. We’ve heard the riffs a hundred times before, nothing too interesting to wake me up or push me aside. The leads are few and far between which give the occasional kick of life to the songs. Otherwise, it’s a fine album. It’s put together well, the musicians clearly know what they’re doing but it’s not doing much for me. I’ll however definitely go see them live, they seem like a fun live band.

Cheers!
