It took this band way too long to make a concept album about the ocean, but when they finally did they certainly delivered. Since I first heard post-metal I always associated with the ocean, and I imagined the sound would get progressively deeper as you go down. This does exactly that.
Favorite track: Mesopelagic: Into the Uncanny.
I love a good concept album, but one that tailors its sound to match the pressure, darkness, and depth of each layer of the ocean? You have to hear it to believe it.
Favorite track: Hadopelagic II: Let Them Believe.
I love the concept. The vocals, even though they were added in post, fit perfectly. Both the instrumental and vocal versions feel amazing.
Favorite track: Mesopelagic: Into the Uncanny (Instrumental Version).
The places this album takes you is so immense and inspiring, this is a seriously legendary album. Anyone who calls themselves a fan of metal should absolutely do themselves the pleasure of listening to this masterpiece! Hail RIVERS! dye.hard.with.a.vengeance
