This is an interesting album of mellow, proggy music that flirts with post-metal a bit but not too much. It's a little doomy, a little deathy, all mixed in together. The vocals are all a harsh rasp that really adds nothing and is far more one-dimensional than the music. This is a band I think has outgrown the harsh vocals and needs a melodic singer, as the music is quite layered and atmospheric. This album is definitely best when there are no vocals, and the guitars just get to run wild. I like it. It's singular and different, drawing a bit from bands like My Dying Bride or Anathema, a bit from Agalloch, a bit from Swallow the Sun and Black Crucifixion - all moody, dark, but rather melodic and relaxed sounds. This is very different, but not in the usual sense of being crap. An interesting and affecting album.
