Grimly grand outpouring with a lot going on, this. Early indicators are bands like Corrupted, Godflesh and Legion Of Andromeda, but the slow-motion torture is ultimately tempered – and perhaps even livened up – by washes of burbling atmospherica and fragmentary, psychedelic lapses that make me think of outlier acts like Gasp and Prizehog. Towering riffs are erected and then left to crumble; plumes of acrid smoke blot out the sun and a feeling of psychic unease prevails. It's majestic and sickening all at once, and you're left wondering whether you should dive headlong in and embrace its many ill-defined horrors or simply flee screaming into the night as quickly as you possibly can.

Recommended record by Collective Zine!
