Haunting Portuguese funeral doom. Mournful, often melodic riffs; shimmering guitar textures; cavernous, choral vocals; and extremely simplistic drumming. Any potential 'prettiness' is offset by the record's evocative production -- utterly dry drums and distorted guitars mixed with lush, reverb-drenched vocals, clean guitars, and keys -- and the record's steady descent into pitch-black dissonance.
