By already being deemed as one of the elite bands within America’s death metal underground, and this merely by their one demo, the crushing “Vault Of Membros”, DISMA would immediately come to the forefront of the death metal underground since it features one of the most influential death metal vocalists of all time, namely death metal legend Craig Pillard (ex-Incantation/Disciples Of Mockery/Methadrone) alongside guitarists Daryl Kahan (Funebrarum/Citizen’s Arrest/Assuck) and Bill Venner (ex-Incantation), bassist Randi Stokes (ex-Methadrone) and drummer Shawn Eldridge (Funebrarum). And with DISMA stacked with respected underground musicians in its own right, it is without a doubt that DISMA have crafted their own distinct brand of unbelievably doomy twisted atmospheric death metal that will forge new ground while naturally upholding the ancient old-school death metal spirit.
With the megalith being described in a scenario as the monolithic tomb of humanity, DISMA’s music on their debut serves as the ideal soundtrack to a procession towards such a monument. With the ritualistic down-tuned low-end rhythm section of doom that counterpoints itself with Kahan and Venner’s crawling and twisted guitar chaos, all topped off by Pillard’s unparalleled death metal growls, “Towards The Megalith” will make its mark within the death metal scene as a monument to time end.
