Subterranean Disposition is the one man death/doom project of Terry Vainoras from Australia and this is his debut and self titled full length album, released through Hypnotic Dirge Records.

Opening with “Between Angels & Apes” the slow hypnotic dirge like tones (Sorry but the label made a fitting choice here) is mixed with the sounds of quarreling apes before the brooding blackened mood intensifies and deep guttural vocals shatter the brief moments of calm. To temper the vocal ferocity though Terry used cleaner and more haunting vocals to keep things measured and dark. Musically there is an abundance of different tones and the riff-age peaks and dips effortlessly and quite unexpectedly the pace will increase and a more death metal element will break through for a moment.

Another key facet of the albums appeal is the little surprises it throws into the mix here and there to break up the slow momentum and bleak atmosphere, like the pace changes I’ve mentioned and the female vocals that come into play from out of nowhere during “Prolong This Agony”, all nice touches! So if you are in the mood for something mournful, anguished and despairing, Subterranean Disposition will fit the bill bleakly.
