4.0 excellentBallsDeep | July 3rd 16

I can say with complete confidence that this is one of the heaviest things ever recorded.
The combination of the dissonant guitar lead with the devastatingly heavy chords and
ungodly deep growls (bolstered by the thunderous production) makes for a pretty
overwhelming listen, which thankfully is exactly what most seek from doom metal. It's
also got a somewhat hypnotic quality to it in my opinion, which becomes a little more
evident when listening through headphones.

However at a runtime of 73 minutes and with virtually no deviation from the
aforementioned formula plus the fact that is crawls at an absolute snails pace, I can
see how many would become disengaged after the first couple of tracks. Whether that's a
token to how oppressive the album is or whether its due to over simplistic and lazy
songwriting could be argued either way.

Ultimately this release is worth checking out for any fan of funeral doom (or extremely
heavy music in general) or fall all those who think they'd enjoy being sonically
bludgeoned into submission for 73 minutes straight with no respite.

Great Album.... This in not one to listen to when your in super high spirits :D . Grinding riffs with alternate timing paves way song to the next.. Pretty decent vocals (Growls). Must listen to any Funeral doom fan
