Good one! It just so happened that I listened to that very album over the span of the last two days, and the main impression that remained was that it needs (and will most likely reward) closer listening. Promising stuff indeed, although I didn't find the clean vocals too convincing.

technically speaking, it's not that good, but it has a tremendous effect atmosphere-wise.

I'll give this album a few more spins, and I must say I'm looking forward to it.

Post Re: Woebegone Obscured - "Marrow of Dreams"

their previous one was a really hard-to-get-into album; as unfriendly and dissonant as it gets, not unlike Worship's latter releases, only with more doom/death leanings rather than funeral doom-wise...

Came in the mail today. This is so much different than Deathstination. I'm not sure comparisons help here.

I like what I hear but, at that pace, they'll release their own Black Album next time.

what's that avatar??

Nah, that album is much better than the debut. Maybe the flower on the cover should have warned you about the content. :D

I'm not very keen on the clean vocals... they suck, imo... :p

Jack Kevorkian.

As for the "bright" cover, indeed I was warned. Well, it's too soon for me to say I like this record better than Deathstination. Deathstination had some kind of post-rock elements into it, which made me think GIBE at times, whereas Marrow seems to have forgotten these elements to replace them with, as you wrote, more progressive "lighter" elements.

I hope for you their next record will not sound like that of Gallileous! :p

did you know this was a painting by Kevorkian?
Unbelievable his way of painting! :shock: I'm mean he was a doctor!

Deathstination had some kind of post-rock elements to it? Are you sure you even listened to the right album? I think you've got yourself confused. Deathstination has nothing of that sort even by insinuation. It's a very complex and hostile album that took me some time to get into, and contrary to post-rock sugar coated tunes, the album oozes with dissonant, disharmonious, non-linear song writing etiquette.

"post-rock sugar coated tunes"?

I'm not sure what qualifies as post-rock to you but to me it's more GYBE and this "Constellations" sound. And it's not "sugar coated" at all, by no means. ASMZ' debut, or HRSTA's, is, for instance, a record so crushing it makes most Doom bands sound like they play nursery rhimes. I don't mean by that that they sound "enormous" and "heavy" but that they are driven by utter despair.

Feel free to expand on what is post-rock to you. We probably don't share the same references.

Post Re: Woebegone Obscured - "Marrow of Dreams"

I finally have this album on CD and just listened to it, and I have to say that to me, this is easily one of the most honest, unique and emotional Doom albums of the last couple of years. Thanks again for the review which made me aware of this band in the first place! I'll have to give their debut a listen asap.

Welcome to the club. Really good and unique stuff that album is. Mind you, their previous album is nothing like the new one; much more inaccessible and hostile, with a lot of dissonant riffs and dirty, dirty sound.
