4 stars All-star Doom/Post-Metal band have put out one of the best albums of the last year; just believe me, I've listened to almost 300 LPs and EPs released in 2009, and this one is in my Top-10! Al Cisneros (SLEEP, OM) on vocals and bass, Wino (SAINT VITUS, SPIRIT CARAVAN) and Scott Kelly (NEUROSIS) both on vocals and guitars and Dale Crover (MELVINS) on drums have managed not only to preserve their own unique signature styles but also blend them into a brand new sound! At first it seems that you're listening to a musical puzzle: here, this is Al's chanting groove, this is sludgy Scott's part, and this one was surely written by Wino...but when you let yourself be taken by their music, you really feel them as a BAND, not just four personalities. With Al's words about upcoming second album this year it seems that they're really becoming THE band, and I hope the next one will be even better than this debut effort! Highly recommended!!!

Best tracks: "Solar Benediction", "Pyramid of the Moon", "Science of Anger"
