19:55 - Mr. Doctor They might be mellow but they are still more metal than many other post bands we already have. That's what I'm getting at. :P
19:54 - Troy Killjoy I wouldn't rush to add them but I could see them here. Of course, it's gonna get to the point where we have to add every post-rock band under the sun, but ya...
19:51 - Mr. Doctor I know we moved away from the topic but I honestly think Woburn House is metal enough for the site. I know this doesn't say much but even MA has them on their site. Also, Damn, I just found out the separated this year. Damn.
19:48 - J. N. I just start talking about shit again 3 days after. Aaaawkward.
Really digging it. Picks up where the previous left off. I haven't noticed any individual tracks quite as epic and crushing as Köld, but it seems very consistent. A little on the long side, though. Ideally, an album shouldn't run longer than 45-50 minutes, IMO.
After first listen, the title track stands out.

Ahh, what a great icy slab of icelandic post-metal.
To be honest, i wasn't entirely sure that I liked this album when I first heard it, plus being the album that introduced me to the band, but it is definitely a grower. The structures of the longer songs make the sound very atmospheric, making you feel as if you were actually walking through the wilderness in Iceland. Its pretty damn powerful, and even if the album is a little too long, there is plenty of variety and moods to keep the listener occupied.
