Buried At Sea - Ghost
Last year I encountered this doom band Buried At Sea through their full length album Migration, which blew me the fuck away with its more than extreme heaviness. That album dates from 2003, and now they release a new epic effort entitled Ghost, released on Neurot Records.
 
The sheer heaviness has taken a (very small) step backwards on Ghost. There is much more room for totally spaced out doom soundscapes, which indeed might remind one of Pink Floyd stuff as the bio compares. The album features only one song, which lasts for thirty minutes. And it rules. The atmosphere created here is an overwhelming and relaxing one, and very depressing as well I might add. Itís a wall of sound, transforming into a wall of sleep.
 
The main difference is that on Ghost the band sounds more into the direction of postcore instead of just doom. While Migration concentrated more on utterly heavy riffs, there is much more room for calm (yet still very heavy) passages. It seems to me that there are a lot more sound effects in the music than before, which I really like. Hypnotic psychedelic doom at its very best.
 
Canít detect a single negative point on this one. It only pains me that I borrowed my copy of Migration to a pigfucker that Iíve lost contact with, and itís totally out of print now. FUCK! Ah well, at least I got the tracks on my MP3 player. And now Iíve got this one to entertain me for many times to come. Iíd advise this to any fan of ultra heavy, spacey and hypnotic doom. This is good stuff goddammit!
