Omit - Repose (2011)

Powerful Norwegian atmospheric funeral doom. Lushly layered strings, piano, flute, all types of guitars, and crawling, minimal drumming, topped off by vocalist Cecilie Langlie's angelic, downcast singing. Repose strikes a perfect balance of beauty and heaviness, and is a must-hear for any funeral doom fan.

Track listing:
-Disc One-
1. Scars
2. Fatigue
3. Dissolve
-Disc Two-
1. Constriction
2. Insolence

Enter partially devoured
Carelessly divided
Shelter all the shadows altered
Got there last to serve the dark

  1. Damn, this is really fine stuff! I was initially excited by the prospect of an album by the New Zealand electronic/experimental/weirdo project of the same name. If you're not familiar with them (or him? It may be just one guy), I think they might very well appeal to some part of this blog's Venn diagram of enthusiasts. Thanks again, Dear Spirit, for constantly having some weird surprise to get me through the day!

  2. damn! i though it was going to be a lost omit nz album too! ;)

  3. i do remember coming across this very lp when looking for clint's nz stuff. i have since got his email address and bought his last two albums directly from him (plus we had a nice chat about stuff in general.)
