Old Man Gloom - Seminar III: Zozobra (2001)

One of the crowning achievements of the post-metal subgenre, and possibly my favorite Aaron Turner-related release (it's this or Celestial.)  Zozobra is a single, just under half-hour-long composition made up of four distinct movements connected by droning feedback, ambient soundscapes, and sample collages. Think of it as OMG's answer to Lysol. Certainly not the most obscure album I've posted on here, but if just one person hears this because of me, I'm doing my part to help make this world a better place.

Close your eyes, roll back into your head
