So there you are, with some new funeral doom album by say . . . Shape of Despair, Colosseum, Pantheist or maybe Ea. You pop it into the CD player and give it a whirl. After about 5 minutes, you grunt in disgust and take it out. "Too optimistic!"

Sound like you?

Then you will probably enjoy Ataraxie's death doom album: "Slow Transcending Agony". The name of the album does a pretty good job of describing the music. None of that soft melancholy that characterizes most doom metal will be found here. There is not as much as a single melodic hook to make the music easier to digest. The emotions conveyed are somewhat cold, and tend much more towards hatred than towards sadness. This is downright gruesome music that takes no prisoners.

Rating: 9 It's very good that this band and wormphlegm do not sound much alike. Superb album
Edit: seemingly I mistook this band with Tyranny

Rating: 9 Much better than their latest album, which contained a lot of filler and made the album way too long and quite boring at times. This one is never boring, just awesome all the way through.
