Splendidula are a 5 piece female fronted post sludge/doom metal band from Genk, Belgium who will be releasing their 2nd album “Post Mortem” on Dec 14th via Finnish INDIE label Inverse Records !! The album is just plain WICKEDNESS !! Heavy riffs, drums and great bass lines compliment the captivating and enchanting vocals of Kristien Cools along with the screams/growls from guitarist Pieter Houben !! The album starts and ends with interludes appropriately titled ‘Post’ and ‘Mortem’ with 6 killer tracks sandwiched in between. The leadoff single is the featured song below ‘.38’, but I’ve really been digging these 2 songs, ‘Nami’ and ‘Aturienoto’ with it’s medieval feel and bass appeal. Check out the links below for purchase info and remember the motto : LLB !! LISTEN to it, LIKE it, BUY it !!
