Oh how time flies... I remember this band from early 2000's as I played a few shows with them with my band (My Shameful) at the time. Always very crushing live, although they did have some work to do to keep up with us in terms of heaviness... Oh well, the album, which was their debut sounded so good, the atmosphere, the sounds... it also steered away from the generic funeral doom "format", with a distinctive style of it's own. Very recommendable to those who are sick of all this romantic gothic "doom" like Swallow the Sun etc.

Also... maybe one of the best drummers in Doom Metal... Corny Hammer!
