diSEMBOWELMENT - Transcendence Into The Peripheral

"Disembowelment" is the act of removing vital organs from the abdomen, either by large incision or blunt force. In England, being "hanged, drawn, and quartered" involved the mounting of prisoners onto a large wooden block, after which would follow the slow disemboweling and emasculation thereof. In Japan, disembowelment was used as a method of self-execution by Samurai to free themselves from past dishonors (however they later turned to decapitation as a more humane alternative).

In Australia, Disembowelment (diSEMBOWELMENT) is a death/doom metal band based in Melbourne. At times, diSEMBOWELMENT is very comparable and similar to acts like "My Dying Bride", but they manage to break such a mold with trappings lifted from other genres, like incorporating Funeral Doom tromps, Melodic Black Metal interludes (albeit very rarely), and hearty, but not overbearing, death growls. This is their only full album release:
