The Truth
3 stars An excellent post-metal release that I came across not too long ago and was rather surprised with given that this is the bands only release and it's been four years without any more material.

Nevertheless, this album was a real breath of fresh air in the post-metal category where I had almost gotten too deep in sludgey type post-metal (which is good but I'd had a little much). It is basically really heavy post-rock that never goes too far metal. I thought that was kind of a cool thing as I had never heard something like that.

With each track hitting about 10 minutes, you get similarly arranged piece that are all pretty good (except at times they are almost too similar, like, "didn't I just hear this?") and apart from the occasional growl, this metal is so atmospheric you hardly notice it's metal.

A fun listen indeed, I'd recommend it to fans of post-rock and post-metal.

The Truth | 3/5 |
