Not your typical "black gaze". Kinda technical and catchy at times when the music pulls back from that dense wall of sound.

This is a pain in the ass to put genres on. There definitely are some black metal elements throughout but not a single growled or shrieked note, combined with various other influences. I actually wouldn't even call half of this album "blackgaze" despite of the atmospheric vocals; post-metal was actually a reasonable descriptor.

I wouldn't class them as Black Metal. They are however self-described as "Dream Thrash" - I think that describes their style perfectly. :-)

Indeed post-metal is much more fitting.

Black metal doesn't fit at all, way too upbeat, no extreme vocals, too clean production etc. Guess it has roots in blackgaze, but it's become something else.

Tough as hell to tag. That's a credit to the band. Something fresh! Yeay!

Thing is "blackgaze" doesn't exist in ms set of genres, so everytime they face it they combine "black metal" and "shoegaze" instead.

Listening to the album now, maybe thrash metal and shoegaze, or speed metal and shoe gaze, would be a better description.

Thrash exactly! The description most accurately summarising my feelings about this music was "dream thrash".
