California's Keeper lurched onto the scene earlier this year (2014) with their 'MMXIV' demo (described by CvltNation as 'doom demo of the year' no less!) showcasing their brutal, gut-wrenching take on doom (think Burning Witch, Grief, Noothgrush etc). They fill their side of this split, the 14 minute long '777' with an unhealthy dose of desolate horror and bone-crunching despair; the vocals alone are enough to make you want to do some damage. These guys are only going to get better and better!
The flip side features another typically weighty offering from UK quartet Sea Bastard. This is their first new material since their sophmore album, 'Scabrous' (also co-released by Dry Cough), and it doesn't disappoint. The band have honed their own unique brand of riff-filled morbid doom and once again they execute it perfectly on the 20+ minute 'Astral Rebirth'.
Co-release with Black Reaper Records, Medusa Crush Recordings, & Tadpole Records.
