From the unsettlingly pink cover to the opening urgent melody, I loved Sertraline’s These Mills Are Oceans. The New York six-piece deliver a haunting brand of melodic post-black metal on their second EP of 2019. Both are stellar but These Mills takes it for me—just. Falling somewhere between Wolves in the Throne Room and Deafheaven, the walls of sound delivered by Sertraline’s three guitarists are rich, textured slabs of bleakness that tower up, threatening to swamp you, even as the drumming and excellent bass keep you afloat. The growling rasp of Tom Muehlbauer’s vocals is both powerful and moving. Many of these guys played together for years in Where She Wept, and the chemistry is clear to hear. When Sertraline do release a full-length, it’s going to be something special and I’m calling dibs on it right here, right now
