First of all, let me start out by saying Septic Existence is full of great riffs, incredible drumming, and filthy vocals. DOUR is the best band to come out of Scranton, PA for many years, in my opinion. I would know, because it’s my hometown. The way they blend faster-paced and traditionally slow sludge is not only creative, but the transitions are impeccable. And hey, can’t forget the motherfucking feedback.
This is grimy misanthropic sludge at its finest. For their first full length, they killed it resuscitated it and killed it again. I honestly can’t help but nod my head to the rhythms when I listen to this album. If I had to pick a favorite song it would be the final track, ‘Adversary Complex’.
