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 Insomnium Dei have been working on at the time, when he released in 2012 as Subterranean Disposition his first self-titled album. With his own project, originally influenced from the early 90s doom metal and modern sludge, he moves musically further creating a doom/death/experimental/avant-garde metal sound.

There has been a very good and qualitative work in ‘Contagiuum And The Landscapes Of Failure‘ taking into consideration that it blends all kinds of the dark musical range. The album’s introduction ‘All Roads Lead To Perdition‘, with its own music video, gives you a clear taste of the incorporation of emotions and floating dynamics.

‘Contagiuum And The Landscapes Of Failure‘ is a collaboration of fellow musicians like Dan Nahum (Bleakwood, The Veil, Dead River Runs Dry) on Drums, Gelareh Pour on kemancheh, qeychak alto and voice (‘Embittered‘)’, and Daniel Lucas (Painted Black) on guest vocals. The result is, each of the six album tracks are somehow distinct. This is due to the successful experimentation Terry invests on each track, such as in ‘Wooden Kimono Fixative‘ where he plays the saxophone. In each track there are variations of blackened, death, and clean vocals, and the musical background varies between funeral doom to ambient melodic post-black metal. The atmosphere is as it should be and representative of the genre(s): depressive and dark, with an underground dynamic. Track by track this album can really grow on you.

Rating: 8/10
