WOMB (USA/Ny): ?s/t? split Cd with DISCIPLES OF MOCKERY (US/Ny) 2002 Necroharmonic

To be precise this is not a real split, as DISCIPLES OF MOCKERY is consists of the same members as WOMB, plus a guitarist. This Cd contains the two demos from these bands that contains all the INCANTATION line up from the ?Onward to Golgotha? days, minus John.
WOMB has no guitars, just bass (two basses to be precise) and the classic deep vocals ?a la Craig Pillard?. If you read some INCANTATION interviews in the past you might know that Craig basically left the band, among other reasons, because he was particularly into the Doom aspect of INCANTATION, while John wanted a balanced mix between fast and slow. So no surprise WOMB is all about that: impossibly heavy and bass saturated Doom, with all the majestic, satanic intensity of the best INCANTATION. I personally found the slower parts of INCANTATION terribly charming, and to hear an album that evolves around those sonorities is really spine chilling. I think the third track ?Secrete? represents the band in its whole concept. Craig unveils his frightening vocals dragging slowly through each minute like a dead thing. Being two basses and no guitar, you can imagine how distorted and claustrophobic it becomes after a few minutes. Consider the song are an average of 5 each, and you get the complete picture.
