I have recently noticed a tendency that the more one listens to some albums, the more positive sides one finds and the release becomes more and more appealing. Maybe this conclusion is logical, though the constant flow of new records is endless and sometimes hinders one from distinguishing good things from bad. In the case of Australian project Subterranean Disposition, everything went to the better side.
From the beginning, the debut album of Subterranean Disposition sounded too diverse. Too much difference in playing styles, moods, techniques and other specifics. The music, though done masterfully, sounded too dull and emotionless. And only over time I felt some connections to the record. In general, the music of “Subterranean Disposition” could be classified as Death/Doom, but there is a lot more to the record. The creation has a lot of progressive touches and some strokes of Funeral Doom. In general, “Subterranean Disposition” is quite a melodic album and it associates a lot to my beloved Mar de Grises from Chile. However in this case the music is grimmer, more experimental, and depressingly rigorous. It has some strange pauses, sounds, slowdowns, female vocals and so on. But only as one begins analyzing the album as a whole, one finds that these tiny bits contribute to an astonishing overall view. This is not a masterpiece, an example to follow its innovation or modernism, but the debut album of mister Terry Vainoras (by the surname he may have Lithuanian origins, which is a subject to clarify) leaves an impression of a hard to understand, yet appealing release.
