UK’s Vacuous return in 2022, after their magnificent 2020 EP “Katabasis”, with their debut full-length album “Dreams of Dysphoria” released on Me Saco Un Ojo Records. Greeting you along with the equally gloomy cover-art is an array of spectral and atmospheric Death Metal that is haunting beyond the nightmarish depths of the human mind.
The album features atmospheric and spectral Death Metal that is haunting and explores the depths of the human psyche. The band is known for their heavy, bludgeoning sound and their ability to convey emotional depth, which adds to the chaotic atmosphere of their debut LP. The music on the album is punishing and emotionally intense, with a diverse range of hostile sounds from doom-laden moments to sickeningly twisted fury. Vacuous’s unique approach to songwriting sets them apart in the Death Metal genre as their music is both familiar and off-kilter, with a disturbing quality that is hard to shake. The album’s ferocious core is never lost, and although it may be tempting to label them as “old school,” their sound is not easily pigeonholed.
