Callisto - True Nature Unfolds (2004)

Finnish post-metal/atmospheric sludge/whatever roundabout way you have of saying "it sounds like they decided to start a band based on their love for Oceanic." What an obnoxiously specific subgenre this was. However, since all those dumb-dumbs who were in Isis worship bands have long since moved on to making false black metal, I'm able to hear this with fresh ears again, and remember why I was so stoked on it when it came out -- it's goddamn powerful, man. Their precise, crushing riffs are enlivened by a gift for composition, as well as some well-placed cello, saxophone, and guest vocals.

Track listing:
1. 31 46° N, 35 14° E
2. Blackhole
3. Limb - Diasporas
4. Cold Stare
5. Storm
6. Caverns of Khafka
7. Like Abel's Blood Cried for Revenge
8. World Collide
9. Masonic
10. The Great Divorce

Stormriding through the bleakest on a black horse
