Yet, before we go into the thickness of fuzz-out and downtuned doom metal, this trio shows something I have been hoping for since I first heard about the darkjazz genre. Yes, darkjazz, combined with doom and sludge, making my slow music loving heart go nuts. 'Setting Fire To The Shelter' brings Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore together with Yob while also throwing in some fierce sludge vocals.
That recipe continues on 'Carpathes', be it a bit more melodic perhaps. Besides the previously mentioned bands, I often think about Saturnus or Officium Triste. 'Floods' shows a bit more of the drone-side of Endless Floods, opening with some minimal soundscapes, before the jazz returns and evolves into sheer steamroller brutality. This way, Endless Flood build a certain tension, and excitement for things to come.
The album closes with the harsh 'Eternal Failure', which is the only pure sludge doom song. However, it's a good one to close this highly varied and immersive album. with Personally, I've never really been a fan of sludge vocals but I know for a fact that they work very well in this genre and they do here. In all 'Endless Floods' is a brilliant album and I can only hope that this trio will extend their oeuvre by further exploring the combination of these awesome genres.
