Golgothan Remains are a band from Australia that plays a very dissonant form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Perverse Offerings The Void" which was re-issued on vinyl in 2019 by Sentient Ruin Laboratories.
Dark soundscapes start off the album along with a brief use of horror movie style synths before going into more of a heavier and technical musical direction. When the music speeds up a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats along with the vocals being mostly death metal growls.
At times the music gets very dissonant sounding along with some black metal screams also being added into some parts of the songs. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody at times.
Elements of doom/death metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the music while one track is also an instrumental and also introduces clean playing onto the recording before returning back to a heavier direction on the following tracks and at times the growls also get very cavernous sounding. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and occult themes.
In my opinion Golgothan Remains are a very great sounding dissonant blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "From Chaos it Has Come" "Phantom Earth" "Looped Depraved Spell" and "Flagellation (Torrid Tongues)". 8 out of 10.
