Déhà is a man of many projects. The Belgian musician tirelessly works on various bands like Yhdarl, Clouds and more—he's a mainstay in my Funeral Doom Friday column. As if he wasn't busy enough this year, another one of his projects released new music. The ambient funeral doom entity, SLOW (an acronym for Silence Lives Out/Over Whirlpool), dropped V – Oceans back in July. Now the project joins a new label, Code666, to release the physical version of the album. In order to celebrate the news, a video for the song "Déluge" has been created.
Déhà's always been a dynamic musician who possesses great range and a great mind for this form of music. On SLOW's newest work, he teamed up with lyricist, Lore, to devise a strong concept for the record. The unity undoubtedly brings a great vision to the record. For "Déluge," the album's centerpiece, the course of 13 minutes presents a dark strain of funeral doom. Dense keyboards create much of the ominous ambiance, but it's the towering riffs and tremendous growl that instills terror. Don't take my word for it though. Check it out for yourself.
Listen/rediscover SLOW's "Déluge" below. Pre-orders are live on Code666/Aural Music for vinyl and CD formats.
