The attack of "Alpha" stinks so much of his early Katatonia: "Phasing Currents" opens up into a vein melancholic doom as only the legendary "Dance of December Souls" was able to do. Rhythmic and very linear in the belly of the music, moves a plucked guitar, distraught and dusk, which leaves only a glimpse of the darkness of night. Here is the debut of the nethermost, coming band from Texas, not just what they say is a land of dark and leaden atmosphere, yet the death doom that our offer, that sounds like northern Europe, with just Katatonia and all the clones derived (in October Tide head), as the main source of inspiration. The trio of Laredo does not make that much to deviate from the teachings of the gods and Swedish with "The untroubled Kingdom of Reason" is the obvious deep love for "Brave Murder Day". The guitars draw melodic lines piercing the soul, with the growling of John to further disturb our sensibilities. "Dance of Burning Beasts" closes the EP much too derivative, which despite offering a emotional music, is likely to get lost in the infinite sea of clone bands for 20 years trying to reproduce the sound of the beginning of mastoso Blakkeim and partners. From reviewing the monotony background with new sound solutions.
