New Subterranean Disposition album “Contagiuum and the Landscapes of Failure” to be released on June 13, 2016

Melbourne based Experimental Death-Doom band Subterranean Disposition reveals the track “Wooden Kimono Fixative” from their upcoming sophomore album “Contagiuum and the Landscapes of Failure” which will be released on Hypnotic Dirge Records / Solitude Productions on June 13, 2016! Taking the name from a Tom Waits coined phrase – ( Wooden Kimono being slang for a casket ) the track is a meditation on the human obsession with death and folklore of the end time.



With over two decades of experience in various projects, (including in bands such as Cryptic Darkness, The Eternal, and Insomnium Dei among others), Subterranean Disposition founder Terry Vainoras brings with him a plethora of writing and recording experience, and has used that to his advantage, in crafting an unmistakably bold, creative, and forward-thinking album that incorporates as many elements and techniques outside the doom metal genre as within it.
 
Asides from a wide variety of guitars, bass, and vocal styles, Terry also plays saxophone on the album, and enlisted the help of Dan Nahum (Bleakwood, The Veil, Dead River Runs Dry) on Drums, Gelareh Pour on Kemancheh, Qeychak Alto and voice, and Daniel Lucas on guest vocals. All-in-all, a wide variety of sound textures, dynamics, and emotion are incorporated into this album, ultimately crafting an album drenched in atmosphere and post-apocalyptic fervor with subtle and careful deliberation in every aspect of its writing and recording. 

“Contagiuum and the Landscapes of Failure” was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Adam Calaitzis at Toyland studio in Melbourne Australia, and the album cover was crafted by acclaimed New York artist Coby O’Brien (whose cover art also appears on past HDR compilations). This album will be jointly released by Hypnotic Dirge Records and Solitude Productions on June 13, 2016.



The tracklisting for “Contagiuum and the Landscapes of Failure” is as follows:
1 - Hungry Ghosts on Rotten Soil
2 - Wooden Kimono Fixative
3 - Embittered
4 - All Roads Lead to Perdition
5 - A lifelong Slumber
