Rites of Thy Degringolade - The Caryatid (2000)
Raw, drug-fueled, Canadian black/death metal. Recorded as a solo project, The Caryatid is a hallucinogenic, scatterbrained trip wherein ripping, dissonant blackened death runs full force into deranged, avante-doom passages, accented by ominous drones, cryptic samples, timpani, and moaned clean vocals.
1. Into the... Rise and Fall
2. Adrift Amongst the Solids
3. Six to Complete, to Complete Infinity
4. The Rise and Fall of...
5. The Caryatid
6. T'was a Product of Dipsomania
Rites has set a blade to their hearts and their ears
And over their eyes is a covering
And for them is a great punishment
