3 stars Bunkur's first effort, a 65 minute drone doom piece. In terms of progression, this really has none. Slow, repetitious doom riffs that really don't distinguish themselves throughout the piece except to add to the continuous, drone based and cathartic nature of the piece. I really can't say there's much here for prog fans at all. But from a drone doom perspective, like Bunkur's follow up, it's definitely not a bad piece of work at all. The introductory few minutes may be different from what you expect, but when the main riff kicks in at 3 minutes, it continues for a solid hour, with little variation, aside from unexpected lines of feedback and drum beats. The last few minutes is a reprise of the introduction, winding down. And that's pretty much all it is. 3 stars personally, but prog wise, not there at all.
