The Weight Of The World
Reviewed by BravoMarco

Scott Oliver & Patrick Doyle have produced some heavy ambient guitar based drone here. All tracks are unhurried & take their time. Plenty to like & to play. Not mellow in the cello / piano drone sense, just the perfect accompaniment for any darker playlists. Laid back guitar feedback heaviness with experimental touches. All good. Would be perfect supporting Jesus & Mary Chain.
No FCC’s (All Instrumentals) Maybe for the name on Track 6*

1) Arsa (9.28) Slow & delicious: Like molten lava cascading down the volcano. It promises to unleash, but this stays restrained throughout.
2) Vrddi Nidanam (16.25) A growling prowling menace with plenty of feedback. Measured for the first 10 minutes then a more sedate atmosphere with effects take over. (Loving the last 6 minutes)
3) Amavata (5.13) Reminds me of SLF at first, then it takes you to the 60’s for a more trancey state of mind. Psychedelic feel.
4) Dustavrana (5.20) Similar feel to the previous, without the emphasis on the spaced out.
5) Nidanam (10.21) More of a harsher mumbling & a grumbling sound than the others. Gets loud & messy during the middle.
6) *Shittapitta (9.44) This has a more ominous quality. Doom laden, with echo, feedback & the loops working even harder.
