DISEMBOWELMENT (AUSTRALIA)



Disembowelment (often written diSEMBOWELMENT) was an Australian death/doom band from Melbourne that was formed in November 1989 out of the ashes of two-piece grind band Bacteria, featuring drummer Paul Mazziotta and guitarist/vocalist Renato Gallina. With the help of Dean Ruprich from Melbourne death/grind band Necrotomy providing session bass, the band released its first demo, "Mourning September" in September of 1990. diSEMBOWELMENT played a very slow form of Doom (with occasional bursts of great speed) that relied equally on the atmospheric effects of droning guitars and constant riffing. The band was known for its atmospheric chanting, slow riffs and spiritual dark elements present in their symphonic, heavily distorted style. They are often credited with spawning the Funeral Doom movement that developed years later. In 1991, Jason Kells joined the band on lead guitar. The song "Extracted Nails" was recorded in April 1991 at Double Tea Studios for a compilation on the German label Mangled Beyond Recognition, released the following year.  Over the 3rd & 4th of August 1991, the band went back to Double Tea studios to record their second demo "Deep Sensory Perception into Aural Fate". This recording marked a big step forward in the maturity of the songwriting, performance and overall production. The demo sparked the interest of Relapse Records, who promptly signed them up and released the demo as the "Dusk" Ep in 1992. This was an edited version of the demo that omitted the linking piece of music between the two songs. It also included the first recorded version of "Cerulean Transience Of All My Imagined Shores", a 3rd track not featured on the original demo. The 1993 album Transcendence Into The Peripheral featured a slowly executed drumming style, accompanied by death metal vocals, chant and passages of dark ambience.
