Crushing, filthy death/doom metal. This sounds like Hellhammer on a bunch of downers, and while it pretty obvious takes from that well of influence (the riffs and the vocals) it is still its own beast. The feel and tone of this album is just uncompromisingly dismal. The riffs are great, the vocals a dead ringer from Tom G. Warrior, and the drums go through some really damn creative patterns. Admittedly the mix doesn't have enough guitar in it (even the demo had a better mix), but the stark, oppressive feel that the band conjures up wins out here.
