A very difficult album for me to rate, as Death Doom is perhaps my absolute favorite genre, and Disembowelment’s first and only album is considered by the some the greatest Death Doom album of all time. It was certainly the first album to have hints of Funeral Doom and would end up becoming influential in that scene, and has a ton of straight Death Metal compared to most Death Doom.

The cooler parts of this album are definitely the way it uses clean, reverbed guitar notes to create melodic atmosphere, but this is only done occasionally. The variety in drumming is also very nice, with everything from Funeral Doom plodding to full Death Metal blastbeats. So, wherein lies the problem for me?

Death Doom was still very primitive in the early 90’s, and Transcendence into the Peripheral is no different. It is extremely basic both in style and execution. The riffs, if you can call them that, are very monotone and minimalistic. That’s not uncommon for Doom, but the way minimalistic riffing works is by creating and relying on strong atmosphere to carry the song. Disembowelment completely falls flat in this regard.

Outside of a few moments with cool backing vocals and reverby clean instruments, there is really no mood created at all, and therein the atmosphere is empty and boring. The songs have no emotion, even the lyrics are spiritual and abstract ramblings that carry no weight. They talk about death and darkness sometimes, but it’s in a Death Metal ad lib sense, none

Keďže hodnotenie kapely Disembowelment bolo poväčšine pozitívne, rozhodol som sa pozháňať si dané album, vypočuť si ho a urobiť si naň vlastný názor. Po viacnásobnom vypočutí (pričom prvý dojem bol úplne negatívny) som zhodnotil album "Transcendence Into the Peripheral" nasledovne. Hudba sa pohybuje v pomalom, prípadne stredne tempom Death/Doom Metal -e občas aj s prvkami Funeral, prípadne naopak rýchlejšími pasážami. Pre mňa obrovskou nevýhodou a mínusom je časté opakovanie sa v piesňach, či už jedného riffu alebo iného hudobného motívu. Gitary majú pritom poväčšine podarený zvuk, no piesňam chýba z môjho pohľadu výrazný nápad a ucelenosť. Growler Renato Gallina (aj gitarista) využíva rôzne polohy od hlbokého growlingu a ryčania (to sa m práve nepáči) po občasné blackové výkriky. Napriek viacnásobnej snahe o ocenenie pozitív albumu, ma zatiaľ máločo z neho oslovilo a vyššie hodnotenie albumu zatiaľ nemôžem dať.

무사앨범. (무조건 사) 입니다. 90년대 활화산같은 앨범을 만든 Disembowelment 의 최고의 작품이니 따로 드릴 설명은 없을 듯 싶습니다. 올드함의 교과서 적인 변칙없는 일직선상의 모습하며 템포조절이 상당히 간략하게 바뀌면서 긴장감마저 만드는 드럼파트의 묵직함에 각 파트별 레코딩을 병렬식이 아닌 직렬식으로 해서 인지 상당히 응집력이 강한 앨범 입니다. 빨간 앨범커버가 의미하는 단순 경고문 형식의 문구에서 느껴지는,,, 살벌함까지 느껴지네요.

7곡 밖에 없는 게 너무 아쉽다

At the very deathy early section of this album I had doubts I was going to like it, but when it shifted into full-on doom all my doubts vanished. I really enjoyed it.

둠이라는 장르에 관심이 생겼다면 이앨범은 꼭 들어보라고 권하고 싶다.

나에게 데스둠 올타임넘버원 리프들이 마치 지하어딘가에서 서서히 올라오는 시체들을 떠올리게한다

둠/데스 최강 띵반. 흡사 신비롭기까지 한 보컬은 목욕탕에서 녹음했나보다. 우엉어엉

데스둠의 교과서적인 앨범. 지루하지않다면 당신은 이 앨범에 이미 빠져있는 셈이다.

그라인드코어/데스/둠이 적절이 융합해 지독한 작품을 만들었다

데스둠 필청 명반. 그로테스크함 마저 느껴지는 보컬이 매력적이다.

Amazing Death/Doom Metal work! The mixture is around 4 Doom and 6 Death, being all br00tal and shit. 'Nam sayin'?

말이 필요한가 둠메탈의 전설이요 신화 그리고 완성

독특한 형태의 사운드를 가진 밴드. 지금 나오는 둠/데스밴드는 이 밴드의 아류라고 할 수 있다.
level 10   85/100
둠데스를 논할 때 이 앨범을 빼놓을 수는 없다

묵직하고 신비스러운 앨범....
