NGR (The New Golgotha Repvbliq) is the ambitious new album from the Tunisian funeral doom band Omination. Fedor Kovalevsky (Severe Agony) is the mastermind behind the band, writing and arranging the songs and also handling production duties.

The album is nearly 80 minutes long, with morose funeral doom augmented by atmospheric organs and choirs. It’s heavy and crushing, but there are mellower moments as well that give the listener a respite. Kovalevsky keeps things moving (though sometimes at a glacial pace), avoiding monotony even on the lengthy songs like the 20 minute title track. The album closes with a cover of Skepticism’s “Nothing” from their 2003 album Farmakon. It’s a challenging listen at times, but funeral doom fans should find NGR worth the effort.

Rating: 3.5
