Boomkat Product Review:
At times comparable to the post-metal outlook of bands like Grails or even Mogwai at their most brutal, Conifer are equally at home cooking up a punishing barrage of discordant riffs as they are unleashing plumes of doomy atmospherics. Opener 'Surface Fire' is a relatively easy-going opener, sounding like Explosions In The Sky or Sickoakes rushing through an entire set within seven minutes. Next comes the darker, slightly more elaborate 'Cruciform Empennage', seemingly building up to a full-blown metal episode, only to implode into the gothic drones of 'A History Of Disappointments'. The album's centrepiece might be the finest thing here: 'Song For Krom' lives up to its Conan The Barbarian-referencing title, spending fifteen minutes rampaging through grim prog-thrash only to arrive at the atmospheric 'Breathe, Hold', which removes much of the fury and distortion, only for another epic to show up as a finale: the thirteen-minute 'Crown Fire' features Oxbow's Eugene Robinson on vocals, and is probably the most unashamedly metal sounding composition here.
