Crestfallen Songs about death and feeling at peace with it. What more could you ask for? This album is fucking heavy.... I love it Favorite track: Hyperion.

Deej Great disc and I think the best one for this band, I hope to see another release some day to see where this goes, I like the trajectory and evolution to this sound.. down tempo music but this is as upbeat as it gets for all the releases. Nice, heavy, melodic.

Sounds a lot like Ken Andrews, and if you've never heard of Ken Andrews and you like this, you'll like him,. (formerly of Failure, On, Year of the Rabbit and now solo)

Chris Z Never heard of these guys before but the fantastic album cover drew me in. Then once I heard the first track, I knew that I had found what I was looking for! A beautifully written, hauntingly heavy album - no screams or growls are (thankfully) needed here! Turn the lights down, get comfortable and get lost for the next hour, what a way to end the day! Favorite track: The Staircase.

about

Progressive atmospheric doom juggernauts Arctic Sleep return with their sixth full-length album, 2014's "Passage Of Gaia." Returning to their roots as a two-man band with a gigantic sound, multi-instrumentalist Keith D and guitarist Mike Gussis once again steal you away from reality and plunge headlong into 54 minutes of pure sonic power, beauty and imagination.

This follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2012 album "Arbors" expands on the band's unique musical recipes with their most complex & exciting material yet.
