1 stars This is a very nice post rock band from Texas whose music I've been following for the last couple of years, due to the great atmospheres they create mainly with guitars. In 2010, they released a single entitled Moving on the Edge of Things in which we can listen to a couple of tracks that don't really give us a hint of what This Will Destroy You music is about. Here, they put experimental music, of course with some post rock tones but with an industrial and drone tendency. So be careful, because you might be surprised here, and maybe not in a positive way.

The first track is "Woven Tears", which starts with 30 seconds of an atmospheric, yet industrial sound that later is complemented by drums. The music continues in the same way, it sounds raw in moments, with a constant noisy- industrial feel that prevails until the very end. Though it is not bad at all, I think this track is a bit weak for post-rock purposes. The second song is "Ritual" which follows the same direction as the first one, though here I think the drone tendency is much more evident. This track lasts 11 minutes, so if you like drone music, you will like this, otherwise, I'm afraid you will want to skip it or finish it soon.

An experimental side of This Will Destroy You, not my favorite definitely. Enjoy it!
