Guest review by
Judging by what I've seen so far, people tend to have a much harder time listening to music that is extremely slow than its fast counterpart. Oh, you think you know what extremely slow is? Well then, you'll have no problems sitting through Stream From The Heavens. Ironic, though, that the album contains the word "stream" in its name, when "Ten thousand tons of lead barely slugging through mud... from the Heavens" would have been much more appropriate to describe the sound.

Being (one of) the forefathers of funeral doom, Thergothon set the standards of the sub-genre with this record, which is both challenging for the unprepared neophytes and, at the same time, rewarding for the adepts of The Church of Slow and Heavy.

We are who we're afraid to be"
