On his second album “Subaqueous” under the Drown moniker, Portland’s Funeral Doom extremist Markov Soroka – also the heart and soul of Tchornobog and Aureole – sets out to absorb all light and in the process creates realms of fluorescent beauty. While celebrating surges of darkness and disturbance through Tchornobog, the obsessively driven artist offers a different facet of his persona via Drown. Although the foundation of the music is uncompromisingly heavy and grief-laden, it is carried by a current of playful melodies and weightless harmonies. These forces combined create a relentless maelstrom into the depths of the sea. Produced by Greg Chandler (Esoteric), who is no stranger to funeral doom metal, “Subaqueous” is a jewel that shines brightly within this still rather obscure genre
