The Truth
3 stars An excellent intro to Across Tundras if you have not heard them, it's downright stunning post-metal with an obvious pinch of the band's own formula which is pretty awesome. Who has ever heard of old west post-metal? Well that's the atmosphere this band creates and it's stunning.

Now, while this is a collection of outtakes and demos, it can at times seem like some tracks are a little lack luster. What lack luster there is is made up for in the atmosphere and quality of the collection as a whole. The sort of post-metal jam session that the album sometimes feels like is complimented extremely well by it's old west tendencies and there are many tracks which are very intricate and eargasmic such as "Vapor Trails".

Take note though, this is a chill out record in the strictest sense, very laid back and not for someone looking to rock out per se, but it does still rock pretty hard at times. It is post-metal after all.

I mean, it's Name Your Price on bandcamp, how can you go wrong? It's a great listen and many fans of music will be able to see that immediately. It's also a great start to getting into Across Tundras and their fairly large discography.

3 stars, still a very good record, but it is an outtakes album.
