Originally released in 2006, the Dayon, OH’s post-metal band’s second album came at a curious time when their sprawling, textured and layered sound was still somewhat of a rarity. The idea of complementing tectonic guitars with a doomy mid-pace, atmospheric strata and an impending sense that distorted amplification was set to ignite the apocalypse was a path already embarked upon by the likes of Neurosis and Isis, but not nearly to the suffocating degree as it would become and, arguably, still exists at. In fact, if memory serves, the tag “post-metal” wasn’t even in widespread use at the time, with the cognoscenti referring to the style as “metalgaze” or simply “the Neur-Isis sound.”
