Tides of Sulfur - Apathy Chasm
“Back now with their fetid blast of sludge, grind and black and death metal, the band make a deceptively massive racket that is as pummelling and sonically dense as anything you will hear this year.” – The Sleeping Shaman
“South Wales most aggressive, unflinching, righteous band return with their new full length Apathy Chasm. Tides Of Sulfur deliver more audio battery where the most extreme fringes of music are brought together in a cacophony of ear-piercing feedback and headache inducing distortion. Their use of grind, sludge and blackened death is the audio equivalent of a buzzsaw on a concrete block. ” – Musipedia of Metal
"Apathy Chasm is an absolutely domineering record, a release that can't help but to impress with its breadth of vision and what has been accomplished within. If you let yourself get lost in the vibes of this record it becomes hard to pull yourself out. Tides Of Sulfur have a clear and deep understanding of what it means to get loud, heavy and evil." – Two Metal Guys Reviews
“Songs which will batter you within an inch of your life, bursting with anger and vitriol. This is 100% the band’s most intensive and violent release to date.” – Ever Metal
"Offering up a wave of heavy noise that has the strength to knock the breath out of the body, Apathy Chasm is a creative release and a savage assault in equal measures." - gbhbl.com
Brace yourselves for an overwhelming force of dark and unyielding music, as Welsh heavy metal juggernauts Tides Of Sulfur make their thunderous return with their latest full-length album, "Apathy Chasm."
Released under the prestigious banner of APF Records on 29th September 2023, this new offering showcases the relentless power of this three-piece band, as they merge blackened sludge, black metal, death metal, and grind into an awe-inspiring sonic cataclysm.
The title track is released as a single on all streaming sites on 28th July 2023.
Hailing from the depths of Wales, Tides Of Sulfur has risen through the ranks with their uncompromising sound and captivating live performances. Following the critically acclaimed EP "Paralysis of Reason" in 2019 and their bone-crushing album "Extinction Curse" in 2016, the band's upcoming release, "Apathy Chasm", marks a new era of darkness and intensity.
"Apathy Chasm" takes listeners on an emotional journey through the abyss of human consciousness. Channeling the darkest aspects of the human experience, the album explores themes of existential dread, inner turmoil, and the relentless search for meaning in an apathetic world. The band's seamless blend of blackened sludge, black metal, death metal, and grind creates a monstrous sound that is as unique as it is punishing.
The album's first single, "Anxiety Veteran", is set to be unleashed on the 27th of July, giving fans a taste of the sonic onslaught that awaits. With razor-sharp riffs, military precision drumming and guttural vocals, "Anxiety Veteran" serves as a powerful precursor to the aural devastation that awaits in "Apathy Chasm."
Tides Of Sulfur, comprising Anthony O’Shea on guitar, Chris Bull on bass and voclas, and Tom Lee on drums, have honed their craft to perfection, delivering an album that pushes the boundaries of extreme music. With "Apathy Chasm," the band aims to solidify their place among the heavyweights of the genre and continue their reign as one of Wales' most formidable metal acts.
Fans and newcomers alike should prepare for an auditory experience like no other when "Apathy Chasm" hits the shelves. This album is a testament to Tides Of Sulfur's unwavering dedication to their craft and their refusal to shy away from exploring the darkest recesses of the human psyche.
