★★☆☆ Take any Kurt Ballou-produced crust band, cross it with the slow dirge of an Isis or Murmur, and you’ll get this album. And you know, giving the former’s punch-in-the-nuts ethic enough of the latter’s room to breathe and meander works more often than not. When it doesn’t work, it’s just boring… but there’s still enough here to commend a listen.
