Catacombs is a band that was formed during the birth of the first half of the 00s and it is the one-man project of the persona behind the mysterious nickname Xathagorra Mlandroth . After some EPs during 2003/2004 the band managed to return during 2006 with its first full-length release, "In The Depths Of R'lyeh", and what an almighty and utterly promising debut album it is i must confess! Catacombs move in funeral-driven doom/death metal sounscapes, something we can refer to in otherwords as extreme doom metal, and Xathagorra definitely knows what he's doing! While listening to this US band you may notice Evoken references, but in a slower pace, and of course the distressing feeling we all loved in the guitars of diSEMBOWELMENT is present in the agonising floating guitar melodies (without the more upbeat outbursts of the Australian legends), something i highly appreciated since it's not something everyone can achieve if he can't feel it deep inside!

Seriously underrated. 'In The Depths Of R'lyeh' is one of my favourite Funeral Doom songs.

This is one of those albums that really makes me want to explore funeral doom further. This and any Esoteric album.
