I don't have anything intelligent to say about it - go to TMT for that shit - but if you're looking for the murkiest of "mood albums," I can't recommend this thing enough. Admittedly, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to take excerpts from a project so atmospheric, but in case anyone's feeling curious or brave, find a 9-minute snippet from the 50-minute-long closer above and the decidedly more eventful "Anger Alert" below. Godspeed!

The Abyss is out now via Erstwhile Records.
