Samothrace plays ultra-heavy doom with harsh, alcohol-soaked vocals. A somber melodic sense also permeates the four long tracks on the record-- not in the overused, weepy Euro-doom tradition, but distinctly Midwestern, soulful, and blues-inflected. The songs shimmer with desperation, hopelessness, and pain. The melodic interplay of guitarist Bryan Spinks and Renata Castagna is distinct for such a heavy doom band, and each song is meticulously crafted for maximum emotional impact.
