01. Merely The Ululating Scurrilous Warblers Shalt Interminably Bray!!
02. O, Elegiac Purulent Purtenance, O Sepulchral Longevous Billows...
03. Till The Forlorn Opprobrious Malady Thrives Amongst The Stridulous Indigents We!
01. At The Licentious Abortionist's Abattoir, Thine Disinherited Gravid Worms Adjure Excruciatingly...
02. I'm The Dilacerated Sewed Flesh! I'm The Sculpturesque Doomed Soliloquy!
Hailing from metal hotbed Saudi Arabia… wait? What? Saudi Arabia. Wow.
Ok. Hailing from the HOT Saudi Arabia we have Grieving Age. They play a sprawling death doom that sounds almost a bit Celtic Frost-ish at times.
Perhaps the only thing longer than the thesaurus masturbatory song names , i.e. "At The Licentious Abortionist's Abattoir, Thine Disinherited Gravid Worms Adjure Excruciatingly..." is the actual album itself.
