The shit Google translation:
Project initially born in 2011 in Poland behind will Stanislav Govorukha (already known for his previous involvement in groups such as Auto Da Fe, Coram Deo and Illuminandi), the Suffer Yourself are now a trio settled in the Ukraine geographically and “Inner Sanctum” is their debut in the long run.
There is absolutely no doubt about the identity of the inspirations of the proposal of Yourself Suffer: Our devote themselves evisceration of that fact in the mix of Funeral Doom and Death-Doom certainly reminiscent of the deeds of the fathers of the genre, namely Esoteric, first Funeral , Evoken, Disembowelment and so on. The sound bore is dark, decadent, monolithic, formed by rhythmic riffs, Rates predominantly slow, bleak atmospheres and catatonic, cavernous growl: in other words, the basic recipe of this kind of current music.
Wanting to identify the long – albeit formally divided into two parts – suite “Darkness” the conceptual corpus of work, it’s easy to notice how the sound mix presented to us is not never heard nothing, but still faithful in their intent to annihilate the listener, crushing under the weight of an atmospheric rendering damn catacombs. I Suffer Yourself operate within an envelope of agonizing discomfort that expands further with sacral aura emanating from the notes of the violin suffering and tormented by interweaving guitars; melodies, dramatic and painful, often become the centerpiece of pieces that show how much elephantine empathetic in their wrapping and obsessive ability to flow the poisonous sense of despair typical of the genre.
Note plus the excellent work done by Greg Chandler (and if you do not know who this gentleman, you can safely go read some other article) behind the mixer: the production is in fact full of arrangements which, although not immediate to grasp, chisel work in an interesting way, making the sound massive and heavy melancholy. Chandler offers the same plus your own voice and your guitar performance of “Eternity (The Eternite)”, an episode cyclic morbidly gloomy and mournful that closes the album as an epitaph.
“Inner Sanctum” is, as established tradition, an album long and emotionally exhausting, but unquestionably of great value to anyone who is a faithful viewer of sounds and funeral of Doom in its most mournful.
