I've been a huge fan of this Denver Doom Metal duo ever since I stumbled across their demo tape a few years back.
Ain-Soph Aur is the band's second full length and it is devastating from beginning to end. I'm confident to say that at this point the fellas in ITCOS can out-neurosis the mighty Neurosis, which is no small feat. This record is both dissonant and heavy. The album opens with the subdued intro of Middle Pillar which spends about a minute easing you in before it absolutely rips your face off for the next 7 or so minutes.
The next track Nothingness sounds like the background music to a dark spaghetti western and leads the way into Nothingness - In The Company Of Serpents - Ain-Soph Aur amazing Crucible. The first 4 minutes play as a Nothingness - In The Company Of Serpents - Ain-Soph Aur , jazzy stomp before utterly exploding into a massive wall of bone crushing sound. Merkabah is a another raspy acoustic number that is dark and unsettling.
Limitless Nothingness is a short little banjo? I can not recommend this album enough. If I had one minor, and I mean minor, gripe it would be the brevity. I get it Allegro - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Concerto In A Major For Clarinet And Orchestra, K.622 / Divertim due to vinyl, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
Do whatever you have to do to snag a copy of this monster. Grab the vinyl, these guys do an amazing job with the look and sound on all of their releases.
It is still really early in the year, but a solid album of the year contender is here. Highest Recommendation! Instagram alltheghoststhathauntyou. Words by Todd Stealey. Thanks to Earsplit PR for the promo. Facebook BandCamp. Newer Post Older Post Home.
