"...a year later, even the heavy metallers found a gift under the X-Mas tree, which they then most likely devoured in three evenings. I base that estimate on myself, as I read through in precisely that time, even though from all the styles documented by Venca, heavy metal interests me the least."

Drom & Blues For The Redsun

Fullmoon Alchemy Narcotic Session

Total time: 35:50 * Style: post-metal / sludge-doom * MetalGate 2018

Tracklist

V tanci světel (Drom) / Crime Reduction (BFTRS)

"The central motif of the song is breathtaking, but the guys from Liberec are not making it easy for the listener, and alongside this "romance" the vocalist screams as a junkie on a cold turkey. Even the last quarter brings something new, the rhythms are diverse, more pronounced. DROM simply managed to keep it interesting right up to the end."
Fobia Zine

"...this 16 minutes long track is the current best of this dark outfit, which makes a kind of music, produced around here by acts as few in number as there are fingers on the hand of a 'skilled' lumberjack."

"Nahum surprised me a lot. In a good way. Only with great difficulty I am searching for something to point out as a shortcoming, and not finding anything in fact. I shall count Within Destruction among the sureties that regularly revisit."
