Gabriel Saloman has featured in Pete Swanson’s Yellow Swans project and now brings us a solo effort on Miasmah Records.  

‘Soldier’s Requiem’ is a dark, brooding journey taking the basic set up of guitar, bass and drums into doomy territory. Split into four pieces, this album has a certain Godspeed You Black Emperor feel to it, starting off with quiet reverbed guitar and bass and eventually building and building into a pretty loud conclusion.

It’s a tired and tested formula, used to death over the last 15 years or so, and for that reason I should’ve got bored really quickly. BUT it keeps you listening. Moments of sparse piano occasionally creep in. ‘Marching Time’ is, as its name suggests, a thundering three-and-a-half minute drum solo. ‘Boots On The Ground’ is another GYBE-style post rock epic.
