This is another one of those hybrid bands that’s makes “black/doom metal” which may be different from “blackened doom” for completely arbitrary and idiotic reasons. What makes this not just a black metal release? Is it because the 2nd track is just power electronics over the “mad as hell” speech from Network? Is it because this band has something to say that isn’t about folklore or Satanism? Is it because you can hear the bass? There’s a few things that make this band not your average black metal band, but last I checked, that’s how a genre develops itself. To be honest, fuck all of the labels. This record is a highly evolved and refreshing approach to what I have learned is overall one of the least creative genres imaginable.
