Inter Arma — Sky Burial

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ It’s easy and tempting to dismiss this album as nothing more than the lowest, sludgiest layer of The Ocean’s Pelagial… but Sky Burial repays the patient listener with a deft and nuanced exploration of heaviness. While it’s easy to tune out at times, the second half of the album has a few tasty surprises. Definitely worth a listen or two (and that says a lot, coming from someone who’s had a traditionally difficult time getting behind sludge).
