For Winter Fire

Rated 2.38/5 (47.5%) (8 Votes)

This is some of the most worthless shit I have ever heard. I was set to like this: cool title, cool song titles, themes I approve of and a nice melancholy look to the whole package. I was hoping this would be what it looked like – something in the vein of Morgion maybe, with some Agalloch mixed in or something similar.

No, this is instead like a retarded version of Mastodon, featuring slow, incredibly weak riffs that are basically just open-e sludging with gargly vocals that are run through a mile of effects to make them completely unintelligible. With the complete lack of actual music, the ten-plus-minute songs seem interminable, and the album as a whole is like being condemned to suffer, and not in a cool way. Oh, and lets not forget the overdose of feedback whine, which might as well be a voiceover that says 'we have no ideas'. Fuck, this is horrible.
