Absolutely filthy death / sludge / doom from Minnesota. Punishing from the start, Castration is a showcase of unrestrained savgery and anger. It even employs powerviolence-like influence to bludgeon and maim in a sickly new way.
This is extremely promising, and I am hopeful for more from Sabot in the future.
Favorite track: Spectral.

A grand display that's equally gorgeous and grotesque! Churning, writhing rhythms lay the groundwork for caustic, venomous vocals and discordant melodies that remind me of a death metal version of Blut Aus Nord. One of 2023's best metal albums! Turd Ferguson
