Old school death metal/death doom done right. This record has so much sinister atmosphere, with certain aspects reminding me of classic slasher films from the 70’s and 80’s. Can’t recommend this one enough!
Favorite track: Mephitic Abyss.
Spain's rotted death doom band SANCTUARIUM return with their first full length album "Into The Mephitic Abyss" - available from Gurgling Gore in 2 cassette tape variants. Both are limited to 100 each and available exclusively at www.gurglinggore.com
Gurgling Gore had the honor of unleashing the band's first demo tape "Cadaveric Reminiscence" in spring 2022. It was a raw death/doom debut seeped in old school influences. At the time, SANCTUARIUM was a solo endeavor. Since then the lineup has expanded into a duo, with Carlos (of Trollcave) taking over vocal duties.
The album continues where the demo left off, containing 4 death metal epics drenched in atmosphere and brutality, for a 35+ minute runtime. It is equal parts crushingly heavy and oppressively dark - a formidable adversary to all that is false!

This sounds nothing like Opeth, yet it reminds me of the first time I listened to Opeth after death metal finally clicked, and this reminds me of that. Bluenothing would be more like Edge of Sanity. You have some great 90s DM worship, with a little acoustic guitar and some proggy songwriting in there, but it isn't too much. It's perfect. Worm makes some nostalgic, yet epic death metal. 4.5/5 ClassyMusicSnob

this is a fuckin absolute banger of an album. There is something brutally beautiful about mixing melodic guitar riffs with harsh screaming voices from the swamplands. There is also something in their music that reminds me of the greatest band ever made: DEATH! For me the sound of Death is something that no band has ever come close to match. Worm is not a Death clone but they have captured some of the DEATH magic or the beautiful intensity of metal. Just buy this album skarasny
