"A Concrete Wall", the opening track to this album, is the sonic equivalent of the Star Trek movie. No, not the 2009 action packed reboot… the "boring" one released back in 1979.

Like the movie it is long, slow moving and slow developing. On one hand, for a lot of folks, that's a recipe for coma-inducing boredom. For others, like myself, in this case it's a monolithic, gripping listen that ensnares you, has its way with your auditory senses (albeit terribly slowly), and leaves you bound for 30+ minutes.

03.08.2013 Oppressive, dark, s-l-o-w funeral doom with bits of drone here and psychedelia there. And yet another doom album to feature Greg Chandler twiddling knobs. Hopefully you can survive the 34 minute opener.

  Yeah...... This is worth the visit to bandcamp. They're streaming the collosal "A Concrete Wall" on their facebook page

Oh yeah, M. Hater and I. Stellarghost from Abstract Spirit appeared as guest musicians.


Thanks BitterCOld
