Rated 4.5/5 (90%) (2 Votes)

This is a surprising Doom/Death album from Spain – not ordinarily a country I associate with the genre. From the art I was expecting something gloomy and post-rockish, but that's not the case at all. This is heavy and well-written Doom/Death that has both crushing heaviness and ambitious melodies. Powerful riffs drive the songs, reminding me of Morgion in the Solinari days. Keys are used to build tension and atmosphere rather than squander it, and the vocals are a fittingly desperate growl reminiscent of Paul Kuhr of Novembers Doom. A powerful album that puts this band on the map. Impressive.
