This album exudes an almost palpable atmosphere of utter hopelessness, born from the realisation of an inevitable demise at the hands of a mighty and overwhelming nemesis. The riffs are titanic and claustrophobic, crushingly slow and heavy, like being dragged down to a watery grave in the lonely isolation of the vast and unforgiving ocean. Abandon all hope - this truly is unremittingly funereal Doom of the highest order.
