The Sun Never Sets On Cool
|Ragnar of Ravensfjord|
Beautifully epic & slooooooooowwwww doom metal from Oakland. This features members of Dystopia and (the equally awesome), Weakling. This is a bit like Disembowelment or Therogothon mixed with Morgion (or in some places a metal-ized Codeine!) at 12 1/2 RPM. While not quite as slow as say, Skepticism or Earth, they creep along just nicely without the “funeral” appealation to box them in. |
Overall, these are some very captivating sounds that are never boring or stale.
((((1))))) Some chilling cello notes which lead you down the trail of brooding riffs that work with melodic/sullen, vox. All of this later develops into a variety of classic doom styles. (The already mentioned bands along with a bit of Finnish bleakmeisters, Dolorian). It gets a tad “up” tempo (if that were possible for doom) Very cold, wide open & emmenating it’s glory...
((((2)))) Watery, echoi-ing death/doom with a mix of Dolorian and My Dying Bride. A little more on the traditional/early 90’s side of things.
(((((3))))) Damn! Now THAT’s a de-tuned riff! As slow as the first Cathedral mixed with an almost full DOOMED as DOOMED can be feeling ‘ala Corrupted. However they do march very slow for more than a few paces on Sabbath’s path with a Tony Iommi/Matt Pike (Sleep/High On Fire guitarist) series of riffs and even the solo goes that direction. This is a nice middle point for them to the first quest - to scale that colouss of a mountain or to more across that endless desert.
(4) This mostly pointless, untitled, ambient/low lying noise track doesn’t really being to appear until -9:21. I think it actually is there from the beginning but severly low in the mix.
