Rated 3.2/5 (64%) (10 Votes)

Sten is the fourth full-length from Sweden's Ocean Chief and it contains four murderously long tracks of sludgy Doom Metal. The guitar and bass are felt as much as they are heard and your ribcage will vibrate along with your eardrums. The vocals are essentially clean and are used sparingly. Each song is well over 15 minutes and they are all rather dull. There are some interesting moments here and there but most of the time Ocean Chief meanders around the lower reaches of human hearing like a jam band or, perhaps a soundtrack for some post-apocalyptic movie. I guess if you like to sit around "burning incense" this stuff sounds interesting but for me it is just tedious.
