Review: Various Artists – Astral Evisceration On All Hallows Eve

Splits are the most economically savvy way to discover new bands. In many ways, they’re crucial to finding smaller artists that you may enjoy. And there’s nothing better than a Halloween album. I could listen to a Halloween album any time of the year. So, keeping those things in mind, it should be very obvious how truly vital Astral Evisceration on All Hallows Eve is. This thing kills. Each track is fun, tightly played, and spookily named. The lyrics speak of the season and holiday. The amount of pig squeals and breakdowns is absurd. Blast beats are present, as well.

Interview with Despondent!

Genre(s): Instrumental/Technical Death Metal
Location: Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio
PSAB: Where does the band name “Despondent” come from?
Despondent: I chose the name “Despondent” because it fits the underlining theme of
the music that I write. I also did not want to go with the “verb the
noun” approach. Not much significant meaning behind it.
PSAB: Your album The Gallows is set to release on the 23rd of this month. Are you excited for the release? What can your fans expect from the album?
Despondent: Yes it is! I can’t wait for you all to hear it! The EP will be Name Your Price on Bandcamp and streamed on Youtube.
PSAB: If you were given the choice to choose one musician to have featured on one of your songs. Which musician would that be?
Despondent: Cameron Argon of Disfiguring The Goddess doing guest vocals.  That would be fucking incredible!
PSAB: How’s the metal scene in your area?
Despondent: The North East Ohio scene is awesome! There are a lot of talented bands in the area and we have some cool venues.
PSAB: You’re a one-man band. Why did you choose that route instead of the traditional band route?
Despondent: I’ve always liked to do things by myself and at my own pace.  With
Despondent, I can quickly release music and I have full creative
control.  Things may change in the future, though.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give the readers out there?
Despondent: Debut EP “The Gallows” releases on September 23rd! Keep an eye out for a
Halloween split with some rad bands! If you like Despondent’s logo and
