Svanrenne music presents new compilation of russian doom metal bands. There are 120 songs for the three decades of local scene existing.

Recently there has been a number of different doom metal compilations representing the post-soviet doom metal scene. Yet our compilation was put together with a different and original concept. The idea was to showcase both post-soviet undergound doom metal, bands that borderline doom as well as to present some heavy doom-metal tracks of non-doom bands. That is why it has not only doom-metal acts but some doomy tracks by the bands from outside the doom scene. We have a number of well established old bands like Crunch, Catharsis and even Vinny Appice (BLACK SABBATH, DIO) has recorded drums in to the song 'When The Devil Comes by Stonehand' (Russia). At the same time our compilation introduces many bands from the extreme underground to the listener. Most of them have an outside-of the box approach to songwriting and production.

The compilation was put together by Boris Travkin, Anton Bryukov and Vladimir Alekseev. Cover art by Aleksei Savitskiy (Godlikeikons studio)

Svanrenne Music proudly presents the new album of the brutal orchestra of death.

Old school death metal that exists in the realities of 2022. Brutal outrage in a technologically adjusted sound. Terrifying, painful and heavy. The riffs of 'Phantasms of the Bedlamite' are like python coils tightening around the neck in the inevitable approach of the ringing crunch of the vertebrae. Headbanging in patches of snakeskin, dancing on bones, uncompromising and familiarity with Death itself - this is the new Chamber of Torture album. The Pale Crone, probably, herself is afraid of this outrageous genre orchestra that is playing in the name of Death. 'Phantasms of the Bedlamite' is Death Metal. Such as it was bequeathed by the forefathers.

Pavel Vahlakov (vocals): «There was a desire to make the album as aggressive as possible in both ways – musically and lyrically. Something, like a bridge between ‘Tomb of the Mutilated’ and ‘Butchered at Birth’. This album is not a conceptual - that is the difference from the our trilogy (‘Entorturement’, ‘Cadaverous Omen’ and ‘Necrodomain’). In that way it reminds us of our first album - it's just 10 hardest parts of Retro Death Metal stuff.

Digital order is available. Physical copies are coming soon. It will be insane edition by cruel death metal maniacs.
