Suffer Yourself Releasing “Ectoplasm” Album

Polish atmospheric doom outfit Suffer Yourself is gearing up to release “Ectoplasm” via Cimmerian Shade Recordings on November 25th. The label comments:

“This is instantly reminiscent of great bands like Catacombs (US), Hierophant, Skepticism, Thergothon, Dusk and even Disembowelment. The music is doleful, having a coarse quality and yet remains magnificent in its expression.

“Supremely atmospheric, it immediately transports you to a bleak and desolated area, where you find yourself reflecting upon the hopelessness of humanity. It also acts as a strange salve with its inherent melodies, a reminder of beauty against the backdrop of futility. The more you listen to this, the more you get sucked in. Proceed with caution.”

1. Ectoplasm
2. Abysmal Emptiness
3. The Core
4. Dead Visions
5. Transcend the Void

There’s no target, purpose or any attempt to rationalize it. The music and the lyrics are like a bullet shot into the unknown with the sole purpose to hurt. We’re very proud to have such a great music magazine like Decibel to premiere it.”
