Harrowing Catharsis starts out like a sludge-laced snow cone, slowly melting into a semblance of Between the Buried and Me with slightly more demonic vocals. Earth Burnt Black presents a fractured type of prog-metal sure to lure in any fan of this quickly changing and growing genre. This dark and enveloping album will grab you with its chugs and burn you with its constant diversity. It will definitely keep you listening, if only to see what unexpected turn comes next. The members of Earth Burnt Black shoulder their way out of Greeley on this hellish freight train of an album, destroying all in their path with the bone-crushing strength of Harrowing Catharsis.
