Transcendence Into The Peripheral. The title says it all, once you dive deep into the the more disturbing sounds of death-doom. I was surprised that nobody has reviewed this album, so I decided that I will tackle the underground classic from a band that left too soon.

Disembowelment formed in Melbourne, Australia where by 1993 the scene there was developing. The band already stand out despite never playing live and releasing only this sole album in their discography. However, Transcendence Into The Peripheral is not only one of the defining death-doom albums that came out in 1993, but it's one of the most disturbing albums I've ever heard. It's not disturbing in terms of stereotypical themes of death metal like gore or Satanism; it's disturbing atmospherically, vocally, and musically.

One of Australia's best metal bands (we don't have many) even though they only released a single full length

What an absolutely brutal album. It's incredibly dark and sinister and I've never heard anything like it. It makes My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost's debuts feel like cheery albums.

Probably it has to do with the cavernous sound. I can say that the sound was influential for some of those new death metal bands.

Some songs there ("your prophetic throne of ivory" for instance) sound like precursors to The Ruins Of Beverast. Delicious.

Better than anything MDB ever made, this album is still underappreciated for it's time and worth. Hoping Che will review it and Your Prophetic Throne Of Ivory is a blissful spacious funeral. It's why we have Esoteric imo, it's the advent of there genesis.

I may not have the largest collection but I certainly have the absolute best
