I'm not really all that into doom metal, but lately I've been discovering several bands that have really piqued my interest with their unique twists on the genre's sound (Yob, Evoken, Esoteric, to name a few). Now I'm not exactly one to judge an album by its cover, but when I saw an album called Advaitic Songs by a band called Om that had a portrait of John the Baptist for the artwork, that inner voice in the back of my head told me that I was in for some truly interesting music. I had high expectations just from looking at the album, and my expectations were met.

Not sure if this is even metal, lol. I love long, drawn out passages, but this is borderline boring. The production is fantastic and I love the bass guitar but I am not sure if I dig this. Needs more reps.

you've heard nothing! Listen to this - there's literally about 4 guitar riffs in the entire 10 minutes accompanied by an unchanging drum beat. Now that's drawn out.

I'm actually quite enjoying this album so far. It flows perfectly and there's actually quite a bit of variation and dynamics.
