How can a debut record even be this brute, but also melancholic? Australians YLVA know how to produce an album of this category. This foursome tries to trick the listener with a slow and atmospheric three minute intro, but that’s not what you’re going to get. The opener “Sting In The Air” turns into a virtuoso chaos of drums and the painful voice of Mike Deslandes. Even the first song is a perfect example for what to expect from this record – a melancholic Post-Metal storm with hints of Sludge and Doom, driven by the feelings of fear, desparation and anger. This is a great album for everyone, who loves the atmosphere of Amenra and Neurosis.
