Otesanek - Otesanek (2004)

Otesanek were a Philly band whose minimal approach to drone doom resulted in some of the heaviest, most difficult sounds to emerge from the scene. Drawn-out chords, anguished screams and gutturals, and slooow but severely disjointed rhythms -- it's not uncommon for the music to come grinding to a halt, sometimes leaving just the sounds of humming equipment for a few tense seconds. Think Ocean, but way gnarlier.

Track listing:
1. Oceans
2. Dead in the Park

When efficiency and ambition supersede natural parameters
