Dealing with The Harvester

Rated 4.6/5 (92%) (5 Votes)

Doom metal is not easy-going and heart pleasing music. When you get exposed to it without any prejudice, you will feel your body depart as this primordial music comes out of your speakers. If you feel it with all your inner self, Doom metal is the soreness, it is the loss, it is the blackness that flows beneath and carries the soul only to fill it with revelations, which is why this particular musical genre binds its listeners—fans or musicians!

It's been four years since Cosmic Plunge released their debut Wanderers on the Face of the Earth and the doomsters from Heraklion, Crete are now back with their sophomore album, Dealing with The Harvester. Those who never been exposed to Cosmic Plunge before, get ready for some traditional doom, poised by full of riffs—heavy and slow with vocals that trespassing openly with heavy metal aesthetics. With a duration of 41 minutes in total and being slow and menacing in progression where "March of Crows" is a small exception, Cosmic Plunge's second release is an album which continues to build on the strong foundation that their debut release has set and will be gratifying and possessive for the fans of traditional doom and may sound quite appealing to those enjoy stoner-doom and heavy rock as it's driven by riffs from depth and atmosphere of consuming doom.

Dealing with the Harvester is even more black and infectious than the species demands and the band may wish as the compositions are getting increasingly dark as the album progresses, from "Chooser of Slain" till "A Kind Heart Cannot Endure" you feel even more empty and empty, as if you were ready for this: to meet your cosmic initiator! Their lyrics dealing with death and life, love and hate, mirth and sorrow, faith and disbelief combined in stories of mythical content and characters. The primitive flame, the thirst for doom, you see it and you understand it just as soon as their music starts burning your guts make this a potent, non-pretentious and respectable doom release from one of the most humble and devoted bands of the Hellenic scene.
