Review from Forgotten Path Magazine; Issue 8

No one would deny that Australia always had a considerably strong and varied scene in most Extreme Metal styles. Doom Metal is not so much of an exception. Names like Disembowelment (now incarnated as Inverloch) and Mournful Congregation make Doom Metal’lers around the world bow their heads in reverence. It is highly possible that these entities are not the only ones to turn Doom Metal listeners’ attention and i...

Review from Stereogum

For a couple minutes, “Embittered,” the highlight from Subterranean Disposition’s Contagiuum And The Landscapes Of Failure, sounds like it’s going to be another, albeit more texturally intriguing, death/doom song. Then, it drops into a spiky section reminiscent of Starkweather or Today Is The Day before introducing a wonderful, and wonderfully contrasting, guest spot by Gelareh Pour. Hello, left field! Masterminded by Australian Terr...

Through no fault of my own I find myself constantly listening to brilliant doom albums. Most that know me, know I love this sort of music (even if they don’t fully understand why). Hailing from Melbourne, Australia comes Subterranean Disposition (backed by Solitude Productions and Hypnotic Dirge Records) and their second release, aptly titled: ‘Contagiuum and the Landscapes of Failure’. As it stands I can see just how 2016 is sh...

*Mild spoiler alert: a fraction over three minutes into this album, it was already becoming clear that there would be a sizeable number waiting at the end of this review. That just happens to be the time it takes to run through the delicately-introduced and dramatic instrumental introduction, and for the sublimely-crafted instrumental layers being fed into 'Wooden Kimono Fixative' to have built up guitar, drums, bass and introduce the f...

Subterranean Disposition is a one-man band from Melbourne, Australia. Its founder, Terry Vainoras, has been participating in various metal, different-genre projects (Damaged– grindcore, Earth– melodic death, Order Of Chaos– hardcore, Insomnious Dei– doom, among others). He has been collecting valuable musical experience from these projects through the years, and is mainly inspired by the music himself and Mark Kelson of I...

The debut from Melbourne’s Subterranean Disposition was an enthralling slab of doom with the inclusions of saxophone, female vocals and touches of other outside influences keeping it interesting from beginning to end. Contagiuum and the Landscapes of Failure does exactly what a sophomore album should, it improves on every element and expands the sound even further.

The saxophone is back within the first five minutes to set the mood, i...

This weekly column looks to shed some light onto some of the darkest, most depressing, and discordant metal out there. Funeral Doom stems from the deepest depths of Death-Doom and Dirge music. Each week, the goal is to highlight some of the newest music or rediscover classic works from some of the earliest bands and orig...

I thought I'd end this edition with one that I thought should be right up my alley and whaddya know? It is! Do I know myself or what?!? Death, doom and awesome. I listen to a ton of music but I always come back to doom when in doubt. More importantly to get me worked up it has to offer something different than the crowd since the crowd of doom bands seems to be getting more than a little ridiculous. SD keep it fresh with the i...

The biggest mistake that any band can make is to stall progress and play it safe. It’s noticeable when a band simply chooses to cash in and make the same record over and over again without any sort of progression, no matter how minor. Typically, these bands end up losing fans over time, largely due to their inability to make their songs sound different from one another. Subterranean Disposition are a doom band that set out to cha...

It has been a long, long time since multi-instrumentalist Terry Vainoras’s tenure in short-lived doom metal duo InSomnius Dei. Once a random MySpace find (remember when MySpace was a valid catalyst for discovering new music?) a decade ago, this all-but-defunct Australian band seamlessly blended classic Peaceville death/doom metal with the panchromatic psychedelia of Pink Floyd’s classic works. Hindsight has rendered Illusions of ...

Subterranean Disposition is described in their bio as “a solo Melodic doom/death metal/ ambient recording project” from the mind of founder Terry Vainoras.  I actually like this description better than the listed genre.  While listening to the album, I became entranced by the melodies and the ambient sense of finality and ruin within the music.  Each song forged a different landscape that could be vividly pictured in my mind, all of...

When one thinks of Australian metal, one tends to look towards the more progressive and technical in nature. But bands like Subterranean Disposition continue to lurk in the shadows with their bleak and cold vision of darkness. Four years since their self-titled debut, the band has returned with a new release that does bring a very progressive form of metal, but in this case – its doom metal.

Falling nicely into place with the avant-garde...

Now on their second album, Subterranean Disposition are an avant-garde doom band from Melbourne. Contagiuum And The Landscapes Of Failure will be released on Hypnotic Dirge next month and it's a six-song monster that begins almost innocently until the thumping drop that turns the intro track downright hellish. 'Wooden Kimono Fixative' introduces vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Terry Vainoras' sax, an unusual addition to the d...
