The Lion’s DaughterExistence Is Horror

✦✦✦✧ This is almost a very good album. You’ve got an intriguing blend of sounds here, from Deafheaven to Ufomammut to Indian to Isis to Zombi, and with a maximum track length of 5:30 you’d think that this would be the perfect sludge album for me. Sadly, the pacing here is a little too brief for my liking; promising ideas are not always given enough time to germinate, and song endings tend to come quickly and from out of nowhere.
