Marcel H. : Oh goodie, a split by The Wakedead Gathering together with Ecferus. The Wakedead Gathering always makes Hubregtse a happy camper by listening to their obscure and murky death metal. ‘The Blind Abyss’ which is featured on this split lasts eleven minutes and is immediately the longest song the band has ever released. Does this mean there is a break in style compared to their earlier material? No, luckily not. It is still murky cavernous death metal through and through. Only longer than before. A fine raw clanging piece of music. Ecferus delivers three songs and plays a very standard form of black metal. Not bad, but it just goes in the one ear and out the other. The songs are at their strongest when the band shifts down a couple of gears The split is worth purchasing on the basis of just the The Wakedead Gathering’s song.
