Doom metal is renowned as being slow and heavy as metal comes, and they’re right, but there aren’t a lot of bands that still cling onto that really old school doom that not many remember much less pull off exceedingly well. Apostate has gone back to that lost era and has created an album that brings that era to the present with their 5-track beast of an album “Time of Terror” with its crushing riffs and the combination with death metal gives a real gruesomely harsh texture to the songs that makes them feel much more than 7+ minute songs. This whole album front to back is a masterpiece of doom metal and is so far the best of the genre this year and is likely to stay that way for a while unless something more amazing comes along which I highly doubt with this mammoth.
