Item ID: 354980

The pace is slow, slow, slow, and Tekhton have clearly spent a lot of time listening to classic doom metal like Cathedral and Saint Vitus. But they also incorporate cool dissonant chords and long, extended instrumental passages of pretty pastoral arpeggios and delicate melody, but where a lot of bands that use quiet melodic parts to build up into loud, epic crescendos, Tekhton generally use them to wind down a song that started off crushing. Long drawn out droning riffs alternate with more traditional Sabbathian hooks and some angular twists and turns, and the vocals are a strained gruff roar that reminds me of someone, but I can't put my finger on it. At various points, Tekhton remind me of Melvins, Cathedral, and Mogwai, a combination of quiet dreamy instrumentals, lumbering intricate sludge rock and primordial doom, but they don't actually sound like any of 'em, instead coming out with a debut that stands as one of the more creative sludge/doom albums. "Like two tectonic plates fucking"

DEEP BLUE - ANTARCTIC ABYSS

OK, these guys sound a lot like Sleep. A LOT. Or, to be more accurate, like Om. The Deep Blue are a guitar, bass and drums trio, so the sound is more downtuned and crunchy and sludgy, but if there was ever a need to hear what Om would sound like as a full band, then The ... read more »
