about

Nearly four years after releasing the debut self-titled album, Melbourne based Experimental Death-Doom band Subterranean Disposition returns with a massive new full-length album entitled “Contagiuum and the Landscapes of Failure.” With over two decades of experience in various projects, (including in bands such as Cryptic Darkness, The Eternal, and Insomnium Dei among others), Subterranean Disposition founder Terry Vainoras brings with him a plethora of writing and recording experience, and has used that to his advantage, in crafting an unmistakably bold, creative, and forward-thinking album that incorporates as many elements and techniques outside the doom metal genre as within it.

Asides from a wide variety of guitars, bass, and vocal styles, Terry also plays saxophone on the album, and enlisted the help of Dan Nahum (Bleakwood, The Veil, Dead River Runs Dry) on Drums, Gelareh Pour on Kemancheh, Qeychak Alto and voice, and Daniel Lucas on guest vocals. All-in-all, a wide variety of sound textures, dynamics, and emotion are incorporated into this album, ultimately crafting an album drenched in atmosphere and post-apocalyptic fervor with subtle and careful deliberation in every aspect of its writing and recording.

“Contagiuum and the Landscapes of Failure” was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Adam Calaitzis at Toyland studio in Melbourne Australia, and the album cover was crafted by acclaimed New York artist Coby O’Brien (whose cover art also appears on past HDR compilations). This album will be jointly released by Hypnotic Dirge Records and BadMoodMan Music on June 13, 2016.

lyrics

To pass through the eye of their needle and arrive at some gate of reward
To live at odds with the truth - blinkered, bound and gagged

To rest, work and play inside the barricades and facades
Forever under watchful eyes

Inside the straight and the narrow, ceremonies of opposites
No slim pickings for aggressors clothed as victims

To view the skewered through each filtered lens
and not sense the vultures amongst the plebes

To their very marrow, usurp all dissidence
lost to smoke and mirrors when the masters look like victims

To defeat the spirit, subsumed to the innermost
Our fatal flaw inherent, a weighted consequence

hegemony hammer home illusions of consent
dystopia ad nauseam aggressors clothed as victims
