Seeping through the festering soils and sands of this rotten earth are noises foul enough to poison the universe, and New Jersey's Reeking Aura are channeling them with a particular nasty aplomb. We're talking death metal, of course, but the moistened and oozing kind that reeks of doom metal, humanity's dirge. Earlier this month, the six-piece released the Beneath the Canopy of Compost EP (subtle, right?), a three-song cheek-slapper that coats everything putrid green and then gut-punches you for the fun of it. Their brand of death-doom is caustic and brutal in all the right ways, never feeling try-hard or limp.

Personally, I feel a bit daft for having overlooked Beneath the Canopy of Compost last week -- with a Colin Marston production and members from Unearthly Trance, Artificial Brain, Afterbirth, and more, this EP pretty much makes the decision for you: listen. It's pretty much the sonic variant of physically decomposing in the ground. To help you achieve that effect, we've got a new lyric video for "Groaning Moss" streaming below.
