To Starve the Cross
Dark Descent Records
Release: 13 June 2016
This is death doom from California, U.S. In this case the complete album is available for listening, therefore supporters of old death metal with doom influences can hear directly from the horse's mouth what the band is all about.
OFFICIAL: Southern California's Ghoulgotha have re-emerged from the depths with the release of To Starve the Cross. The band's 2015 debut - The Deathmass Cloak - was praised by critics for its demented revisioning of doom-infused, old-school death metal. To Starve the Cross sees Ghoulgotha twist an already abstract reality into forms never before experienced. Cvlt Nation, in response to the release of The Deathmass Cloak, said it was time to "posers the door." To Starve the Cross is the 10-headed beast ready to devour those who didn't heed that warning. This album, simply put, is a masterpiece of atonal and dissonant death metal delivered straight from the warped mind of Wayne Sarantopoulos (Decrepitaph, Encoffination, et. al). To Starve the Cross was mixed and mastered by Damian Herring at Subterranean Watchtower Studios with artwork by Mattias Frisk.
