G0g - Noriah Mills [Sounds of Battle & Souvenir Collecting - 2007]This strangle titled project, mini two track album and puzzling packaged has little or no info to who or what created it. Falling somewhere between the cracks of ambient, black metal, doom and blacked guitar psychedelics
At first it slips into your psyche with creeping ambient tentacles lulling you into a relative sinister state, before slowly psychedelic grinding into you mind with a odd mix of blackened guitar drag, weird vocal chants and building tension. As it progresses the guitar layers are built up and up to an blacked fog like state, almost to seemingly an airless point as rhythmic and sound layers ebb and slowly flow in evil discontent around the gitar smog. Then it just keeps getting more & more heavy stopping briefly before once more unfolding its blacked sorrowful hypnotic lovecaften smog of guitars, feedback textures and drums that you really never want to end.
A Haunting, heavy and strangely dreamy near on half an hour trip into darkened sonic ambience and sludge that will stay reeling in your mind some minutes after its finished, leaveing you wonder exactly what youve just played or been exposed to.Roger Batty
