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 doom experiment and one that lends this a distinct character.

His vocals are flat-out gutsy and keeps the unorthodox approach in check, anchoring it in a wonderfully viscous underworld. 'Embittered' is intense from the off and packs a belting breakdown riff, just one of plenty on this record. Contagiuum... is arresting, heavy, harsh and unpredictable in equal measure, its slow pulse drawing the listener in and never really letting go. Fancy a challenge? Here's one worth investigating. The last song is phenomenal.
