Andrew Plante (known for his main drone project under his surname) delves into black metal in this project, juxtaposing some harsh lo-fi riffs along with the spacious ambience. Xasthur, Mutiilation, and even Nadja come to mind when the guitars and drums come in; otherwise, morbid droning tones prevail. Bleak, bedroom black metal with an abundance of swirling guitar feedback and cassette tape hiss—perfect for late nights spent worshipping Satan.
Instrumental: therefore FCC clean.

1. (8:34) Dreamy, hovering chorus and synth ambience eventually segues into some morbid guitar droning. Then rumbling drums come in and the guitar plays a tremolo black metal riff.
2. (1:38) Thrashin’, headbanging black metal riffage; occult guitar noodling. Sounds like a teenager writing riffs in his garage, and I mean that in a good way.
3. (2:57) A single crescendoing tone of droning guitar feedback… snore
4. (3:07) Bleak, muffled minor key black metal with monotonous fast drumming
