Italian death-doom behemoths Assumption return with their otherworldly debut LP - once again dragging the listener to a warped and hallucinated twilight zone lost at the edge of the cosmos. Inspired by the majestic and dismal craft of bands like Disembowelment, Thergothon and early Esoteric, within the crushing vastness of these three colossal songs the listener will feel the weight of omnipotent emptiness pushing them down toward the event horizon where they are slowly and meticulously pulled apart by invisible tidal forces before they decay into the singularity.
