After a few successful demo’s/EP’S, these Belgians are pushing up the ante. It’s clear ALKERDEEL has progressed quite a bit since the release of ‘Luizig’. Although the familiar elements are still present – raw sludge/doom infused with filthy black metal – the compositions have matured and gained more depth. The lo-fi approach of the previous albums made room for a more thoughtful recording process, making it sound perhaps more accessible but also allows the sound to reveal all its sluggish nuances. But rest assured, ALKERDEEL remains ALKERDEEL: a mean putrid steamroller that takes no prisoners!
Besides the regular cd and (colored) vinyl version, there is also a diehard edition in a wooden box holding an exclusive clear vinyl, cd, t-shirt, giant poster, sew on patch, button and band pictures, limited to 100 copies.
