Call me a bit of a false but I'm just really getting to this record now - and it's pretty fucking amazing. It sounds excellent, and that it's just bass and drums is pretty incredible.

I don't know what I was expecting, but I assumed from the descriptions it would be sludge/drone when in fact it's got way more in common with funeral doom a la Mournful Congregation, but with enough of a unique twist to make it stand out.

Definitely a sleeper doom album for me, I really haven't heard much lately that's really interested me but this is a welcome change from that.

i listened to this one a lot. the vincent price samples and the general vibe of the album is pretty fresh. did you pick it up on vinyl?

Yeah but it hasn't arrived yet. I ordered from Profound Lore which is in the same city so I'm expecting it tomorrow or the next day. I'm expecting it to look and sound awesome.

They were on tour with Graves at Sea, Meth Drinker & Samothrace. Unfortunately I missed them. Samothrace was good though, I think they have the bass player of Bell Witch.

I really like this. Demo was great too. Find myself listening to either one of them a couple times a week still. Good stuff. I too had expected just a average doom band at first, but was pleasantly surprised upon hearing it. Reminds me of Asunder a lot.

I picked up this record on supercompressed mp3. It still sounds great. I'm also missing a couple of tracks. Being broke is awesome.

I'm medium-surprised that the vinyl of this is still available. This came out a year ago now?

I was curious if this was any good. Based on the comparisons, I will give this a listen.

Highly recommended band! "I wait" is one of the best doom songs i've heard in years.

This record needs to be out there more. One of the few Seattle bands I really like, and in my top 10 of last year. Their use of melody is unlike anyone else. Sounds like monastic doom.

don't forget about the highly successful use of the vincent price samples. if you havent seen it already, 'masque of the red death' is an excellent corman film.

Great flick, and great use of the sample. I am loving this record, I've been playing it non stop. What kind of effects does this awesome bass dude use? I can't believe it's just two people.....
