Cavernlight : " As We Cup Our Hands and Drink From the Stream of Our Ache"
"Wander part 2' is more of an interlude than an actual song as it lingers in minimal post -rock like atmosphere. Then there is an almost shoe gaze like hypnosis that set in with "To Wallow in the Filth that Dwells Where Despair is Born". I like this melody and it's shame the melodic possibilities are left to wander in the filth.The songs potential is abandoned around the four minute mark. Female vocals come in a lend a more Ragana like feel to the song though this is the touch of dynamics that the album needed. They go into a more black metal climax, so these guys only flirt with doom, but like many bands of this day and age they dip into a few genres.
I'll give this album an 8.5 . Any one who tries to claim it's their album of the year is just being a hipster, but this is pretty good when it embrace the more melodic side. I would like to hear more from these guys as their is potential. If you want dark dreamy post-rock tinged sludge then this is worth your time.
