Album Review
The Grunt
Reviewed 2013-11-21
Blackened Synth Drone Doom. Dreamy, ethereal, but kinda dark. Slow moving melodies. Doom riffs played on a deep resonant synthesizer with sampled drums. Instrumentation is similar on all songs so if you like one you'll probably dig the rest. Found this guy randomly on bandcamp and he sent me his whole discography! This is his new album plus his last EP before that. Good stuff!

Faded Memory...
1.) Midtempo drum machine, warm slow synths, and buried screams. Beautiful.
2.) + + Full sounding drum sample and deep Moog-style synth. Vocals like whispers in a warehouse.
3.) Synths rock a doom riff with distorted whisper-like screams. Cool background effects.
4.) Another slow doom riff on synth with garbled guitars and eerie synths on top.
5.) + + Strong start, mixes distorted with clean vox underneath. Disorienting tremolo sounds.
6.) Straight screaming, guitar plays prominent role in the doom riff with etherial synths overhead.
7.) + (7:02) Guitar feedback and soothing synth droooooooone. Washes of soft pink noise. Minimum Entropy!
8.) Slow relaxing synth movements with prominent drums and electronic insect noises. Distorted vox.
9.) (5:48) Ambient. Blurry twinkles of pretty synths. Halfway through hear short circuit noises. Minimum Entropy.

The Desert
10.) (7:00) Ambient synth drone with slow soft melody on top. No drums or vox. Minimum Entropy.
11.) + + Industrial feel.
12.) (8:37) + + Very minimal ambient. Single drone chord with a few other sounds trudging around like ships in a fog. Minimum Entropy
