Cobalt — Slow Forever

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ This is sludge that I can get behind! This is a highly regarded black metal band who haven’t released anything in about seven years; unfortunately, that’s how long the album feels. This album has been universally praised, and I get why (I really dig the early-Tool-meets-Aaron-Turner aesthetic here)… but it’s a bit of work to get through. Still, it’s the best thing the band has ever put out.
