Abstract from MetalRage review:
|The interesting spacey songs are a real treat to listen to. They manage to go from loungy, almost jazzy parts into epic rock and crawling doom metal. And all this with a great overall atmosphere that lingers throughout every song. I definitely recommend this to fans of bands like Made Out Of Babies, Neurosis, The Swans, Cult Of Luna, Red Sparowes and Sunn 0))) and their various projects. As I am informed by the bio, the band seems to be keen on collaborating with performance and visual artists when they play live, so should you get the chance to see them, donít miss it!|
Abstract from Lords of Metal review:
|This one is for in the books! What a great release! What a jewel this quartet brings forth! Slow doom. Loads of sounds, loads of keyboards and guitar echos, loads of instruments like a harmonica or classical guitar fill up the holes in this created industrial setting. So many layers, so many pieces, so many influences, how intense, how intelligent, how grasping.|
Enjoy and seeeed
