One reviewed described this as “drone metal” and my brain went “TILT!” trying to imagine a fusion of Phill Niblock and Metallica. That would be like abstract realism or the southern north pole. Then I listened to it, and, yup – they really have mixed musical opposites. Like drone music, it’s (sometimes seemingly infinitely) slow, where every new note is a major event. Like metal, it’s made with fuzz guitars and distorted vocals, and sounds best at punishing volume levels. There’s also a ghoulish chorus of Tibetan trumpets and a strangely melodic trombone solo, both apparently played by Seattle new-music luminary Stuart Dempster. I should also mention the (unusual for metal) use of (or lack of) percussion: there are no drums, though twice in the second song, all motion ceases to the peal of a single bell. Fun (if perhaps overly dramatic and doom-laden) stuff, both for the uninitiated and the experimental-music nerd.
very enjoyable doom-metal
