After the opening track, one is inundated with dirty, sludgy riffs and methodic, ritualized drumming in Bitterman. It comes off as almost meditative, how they set their drone/doom stylings up. Before I knew it I was immersed in their music, just letting my thoughts drift with each strike ov their kick and tom. The Deadlight Sea is even more ritualistic, its distorted layers ov bass and vox just come off as ambient after long enough exposure. It's something I could definitely see me playing in the background while I caught a nap or something.
All in all, if you're a doom/drone enthusiast, this album has its high points and low points. Definitely
more highs than lows, though, and in parts comes off almost as early Earth/Sunn o))) worship. Definitely worth checking out for enthusiasts ov such stylings, though. Recommended.
