In a way, I guess I can describe this acts as a combination of Sardonis and Earth. The songs are long piece of instrumental doom, crushingly heavy at times and gentle and soothing at other occasions. The tempo usually is slow, as if the music crawls its way through a thick, muddy cesspool of drones and noise. Combined with the minimal approach in drums, the whole certainly gets a trance-inducing aspect.
'No Pity for the Beast, No Shelter for the Innocent' opens the album is full drone-doom tradition. Yet, I do sense a hint of dark jazz here and there, which makes the music even more interesting than it already is. 'Crystal Empty' adds flashes of Master Musicians Of Bukakke, again something I like a lot. Floating along with this sluggish percussion certainly has something hypnotic.
Another element that is certainly present, is the experimental noise and drone sound which is quite popular in the noise scene. You can hear in the feedback and often harsh noises of the guitar but you can definitely feel it in the gritty atmosphere. I can clearly imagine this band playing in a dark, cold and damp basement venue in front of only a handful of people. Those people know they witness something unique, something intense.
'Peace of Decay, Joy of Collapse' is one of my favorite tracks on this album, a slowly building and ever-immersive piece of drones, drums and guitars. This certainly is one that I'd like to see live one day. Or better, hear live, because I don't think I will be watching the stage a lot. I'll be somewhere in the audience, with my eyes closed, listening to the droney goodness while my mind wanders off to a completely different dimension.
