Boomkat Product Review:
Proggy space metal alloyed with post rock and kosmiche synths, produced by Randall Dunn (Sunn0)))), Earth, Wolves In The Throne Room) at his Avast! Recording Studio in Seattle, WA.
It’s a really mixed bag, this one. We’re initially turned off by the chinny chuff prog levels they hit in the first track, but give it time and you may be rewarded with some interesting collisions of metal with drum machines, until, oh fuck they did those twiddly prog vamps again. Nah, i’m not having it.
But actually those deckside shoegaze strums are quite nice, and that passage of alien syrenes beckoning us to their planet paradise are bloody lovely. Ah fuck it, we can’t make up our minds: is this D&D soundtrack gear; or more Alien blockbuster score?
