Chris Woodford powerfully melancholic funeral doom. the guitar harmonies will penetrate to your core. finally something to fill the hole that Asunder left behind! Favorite track: Cosmic Descent.

bcb723 So look... pre-orders come & go, no big thing. Debut album pre-orders? Ehh -- not usually any cause for excitement. Guess what: QAALM's debut (from the gold standard Hypaethral Records) is pretty fucking far from the usual. 4 songs. 2 LPs. A huge & hypnotic wall of sound. Pre-release track "Reflections Doubt" already has me diving into their void. You're goddamn right I set an alarm reminder for the LP pre-order (w/shirt/signed poster bundle). Who the hell would want to miss something this good? Favorite track: Reflections Doubt.
Funeral Fog

Funeral Fog Massively dark, gigantic production, cave crumbling vocals, everything I was hoping for, but at a much higher level. Debut album of the year so far, without question!

about

"Very few debut records have this clearness of vision and a
sound this thick and relentless." — Decibel Magazine
www.decibelmagazine.com/2021/12/01/video-premiere-qaalm-existence-asunder/

“…a masterful slab of glacial, creeping, monolithic doom.” (9/10)
distortedsoundmag.com/album-review-resilience-despair-qaalm/

“An utterly masterful record that draws from the best of doom metal and post-rock.” (9/10)
ghostcultmag.com/album-review-qaalm-resilience-and-despair-hypaethral-records/

Combining the crushing heaviness of sludge, the melancholic harmonies of funeral doom, with the atmosphere and intensity of black metal, QAALM have created a gloomy, depressive, and unique interpretation of the doom metal genre.

FFO: Neurosis, Corrupted, Asunder, Mournful Congregation, Katatonia, Anathema, My Dying Bride.
