Suffer Yourself Releasing "Ectoplasm"

Polish atmospheric doom outfit Suffer Yourself is gearing up to release "Ectoplasm" via Cimmerian Shade Recordings on November 25th. The label comments:

"This is instantly reminiscent of great bands like Catacombs (US), Hierophant, Skepticism, Thergothon, Dusk and even Disembowelment. The music is doleful, having a coarse quality and yet remains magnificent in its expression.

"Supremely atmospheric, it immediately transports you to a bleak and desolated area, where you find yourself reflecting upon the hopelessness of humanity. It also acts as a strange salve with its inherent melodies, a reminder of beauty against the backdrop of futility. The more you listen to this, the more you get sucked in. Proceed with caution."
