With a huge infusion of Post-Black Metal bands these days, it has become a very interesting job to listen to all their releases and find diamonds in the rough. Today we got lucky and found Sertraline’s latest EP release “These Mills Are Oceans”. While most bands try to copy the genre pioneers, this outfit marks their own path with the perfect balance between shoegazey guitars and furious BM onslaughts.

This short and sweet release kicks off with the Post-Rockish beginning of “Eyes As Tableau”, a track that slowly builds up to pretty cathartic moments of dreamy guitars and harsh vocals. The particularly enjoy how well is the bass guitar mixed, allowing it to lead the way. For those looking for more dreamier Lustre kind of tracks, “Their Cities” is that perfect mood shifting track that will send you into an aural trance.

Closing with the creepy “Prague”, the band explores a darker and more atmospheric side to their sound, and of course they finish the song strongly with more intoxicating guitars and a very melancholic vibe. Overall, “These Mills Are Oceans” is yet another strong proof that Sertraline is one band to follow and that their musical journey is truly a magical ones.

I’m not just saying that because of my obsession with atmospher...
