Totem Skin - Weltschmerz (album review)

Totem Skin
Weltschmerz
Halo of Flies
Releases: 4 March 2016

To say I really dig this album by Totem Skin is an understatement. Weltschmerz is heavy in the best ways possible. Christoffer Oster is a beasts on guitar. Their sound is so dense. It's augmented by the heavy pounding of Sebastian Engstrom on drums and the yes, I can hear Johan Wiberg's bass and am loving how it rides in the mix of Lewis Johns. It's been a while since I can say that I can actually HEAR bass playing on an album and am very happy that Totem Skin highlights the playing of Johan Wiberg on Weltschmerz.  Every song is worth a listen, there is no filler here. Give Welschmerz a spin on their Bandcamp page and seriously drop the 7Euro on a digital copy of the album.
