Depleted - Onus (NBT039)


Since 2018, Depleted has been fine-tuning their extreme brand of harsh noise-infused death/doom metal. On their third demo, the one-man band based out of Portland, OR, combines crushing funeral doom-inspired passages with classic twin lead guitars, all channeled through mud-caked grime. 

With Onus, Depleted offers up a 10 minute title track that summarizes everywhere the project has been across two prior demos and one split. The B-side offers an unexpected curveball: A death / doom rendition of Nick Cave's classic "The Mercy Seat."

Cassingle-style packaging with professionally printed O-card. Limited to 50 copies.
