The vocals resemble Darth Vader's breathing.With the guitars it's hard to tell where the feedback begins and the distortion ends. The bass is not audible, but the guitars are tuned so low that bass is almost redundant. There is the moan of what sounds like it might be cleaner vocals in the background. It could be synths instead of vocals it's like driving in thick fog to make such distinctions. The demons possessing who ever is creating this murky madness appear to provide harmony vocals at the half way point. But once again is it even vocals all at? The droning quality of this is where funereal doom comparison's might be made. The black metal blasting holds off until the fifteen minute mark and is a short and sweet dip into that territory.
By the seventeen minute mark it seems like the song is losing it's steam as it disintegrates into a blanket of white noise. If this project puts out an entire album of actual songs that they record somewhere that more closely resembles a studio then I would be interested in checking it out. What happened here, I don't regret checking out . This sort of thing is better backing noise than some I need on my iPod and connect to as songs. If you like noise and drone to go with your blackened doom then this might be for you considering how low you prefer your lo-fi to be.I'll give it a 5.5, even though I am interested in hearing what comes out of this project in the future, this seems almost premature, like they were recording this for themselves to hear what it sounds like. They should have given in a listen and gone back to even a four track to give this a little more separation. I like where this is coming from, but would like to be able to have a clearer picture of what I'm listening to. 5
