Rest (CD)
To create a wall of twisting ugly churning desperation one minute and then back it up with a monumentally epic, almost acoustic 7 minute intro on the 16 minute monster The Culling and for it to sound completely natural is the sign of a very good band. This is an emotional rollercoaster. I can't recall an album whereby feelings of utter helplessness wash over me to such effect "If you think you know, then you're ***ing full of ***" is shouted on the aforementioned An Invisible Thread. So the highlight is the vocal delivery and the lyrical content for mine, but that is not at all discounting the impact the rest of the band has here, some of the guitar parts on the 11 minute "it was beautiful, but now its sour" is just amazing, at times bordering on a Jazz/Blues fusion. The Bass is certainly audible, but does not dominate proceedings and the drumming is fantastically well placed. There are some creepy spoken word samples on 2 tracks that further add to the atmosphere on rest. The production job by Sanford Parker (Minsk) is spot on, each instrument compliments each other and if you think 53 minutes of epic sludge/Doom would be a chore, then you probably don't have the attention span for this anyway.
