Skepticism : Stormcrowfleet



Skepticism's sound can not be exactly described as "doom" or "metal" in the traditional sense of the word. Rather it is a slow, lethargic journey through the realms of the inner, dark emotions everyone of us has inside. Non-brutal, utterly heavy and uncompromising slow: those are the words that probably give the best description of what one can expect from a Skepticism album.

Once I read a review describing their sound as the "last stage before hell." I think this sums it up. Everything in this monumental debut album seems to fit with the atmosphere they are trying to create: heavy, orchestral percussion, epic keyboards and church organ, a low guitar and bass sound and a typical, almost unintelligible, rolling death grunt that sounds like a whisper coming from the depth of the earth.

This work is an overall lethargic experience and therefore the album should be listened to as one whole rather than concentrating on the individual tracks. It's difficult to find a more classic example of funeral doom than the work of Skepticism.
