8/10 Mike Staff review, 04 June 2014

Here’s a mammoth album of heavy, slow doom metal from Omega Massif, with riffs so gargantuan and slow in their doomiest moments that they head out beyond Sleep and Isis territory into a blood-curdling mire more reminiscent of bands like Bong or Gruel, mixed with crunchily chugging stomping dirge-noise and the occasional Earth-ish downbeat breather, this is no easy ride. This is unremitting bleakness on such an ambitious and grandiose scale that brings to mind the earth-crumbling post-metal of Amen Ra - the guitars crunch and chug and churn in solid, weighty lumps that batter the listener’s head gradually into a soft putty.

A little homework is telling me that this is a reissue which handily compiles the band’s first two albums. I’ve not had a chance to listen to the entire two-disc marathon but what I’ve heard is very impressive - the cavernous early 2000s sound of post-metal taken to its logical extreme, and without any pesky vocals getting in the way. It’s slow but intensely focused and searingly heavy stuff, and the production is excellent too, atmospheric and gigantic-sounding. If you like cinematic sludge metal with huge boomy tones, you’ll enjoy this.
