This is cool stuff! Combines post-metal and funeral doom. I contacted the label specifically to get this album, so you know it's good! Play anything, it's all good. Mention that this was released on BINDRUNE RECORDINGS!

Disc 1
1.) Sitars drone into echoey throat singing. synth and feedback drone. Carl Sagan spoken word. At 11:30 transitions to doomy post-metal.
2.) Starts off in post-rock mode. At 4min, sounds like Esoteric with heavily effected vocals and slow moving guitar progressions, but more post-metal / slightly progressive. Vocals are so garbled it sounds like light noise. Rather majestic and dirty and the same time.
3.) Progressive but slow and dirty funeral doom. Meditative. Last few minutes are ambient…fade out AT LEAST 30seconds early!!!

Disc 2
1.) Ambient sounds into nice neofolk with background vocal chants, strings, etc, before ending in soft ambient again.
2.) Clean slow post-metal turns into funeral doom with overdubbed growls, backs off to clean post-metal again while slowly fading into drone doom. Song starts to fade out 50seconds early!!!
3.) Shoegaze + Metal = depressive metalgaze.
