Having been slain by a Hell knight in Doom, feeling crushed, I exited the game in frustration. Being a masochist, I left wanting to continue that feeling. That's how I stumbled upon this album.

The sound and production are modernized, with every instrument and voice processed with effects. Guitar and bass mesh seamlessly to create a heavy low end, with riffs used mainly for atmosphere and support. Synths are a welcome companion on this record, being always translucent and light. Drums rarely take center stage compositionally, but are taking a lot of my attention due to high hi-hat and cymbal volume. Other drum pieces sound very punchy. Drum grooves are not versatile within sections, choosing to reinforce a hypnotic and psychedelic vibe, and sometimes enjoy a quirky change-up. Vocals come in sparingly to reveal a deep emptiness within, using hollow and desperate screams. I would have loved to hear guitar solos on this record.

Despite how it may appear, that is not Hercules taking a selfie flexing in a mirror with the Nemean lion's skin. No, this is instead one of the most psychedelic post-metal albums you'll hear this year.

I've clearly been sleeping on these guys, first time crossing paths and their sound is pretty awesome. First play of this seemed to pass pretty quickly as well, all the tracks flow together pretty seamlessly.
