So i made a break between my Best Of Lists to up this, because it's too good to pass by. Shroud of the Heretic are a new death/doom band hailing from Portland, Oregon. It's the band of my blogger pal JT from Coffinpsalms. This is their first EP that counts with a great artwork made by JJ from Order of the Vulture. Judging by the quality of the Shroud, it just makes me drool thinking in a official full length. If you love real dark and obscure Death Metal, don't sleep on this.
