Once again wrapping funeral doom, post-metal, and sludge in its monolithic doom embrace, Un have returned with four new tracks of crushing, apocalyptic doom lasting 53 minutes. It’s a journey not for the weak of constitution, so affecting and emotionally charged is it.
The music is primarily slow and exceedingly heavy, but not without introspective delicacy or subtlety. In fact, Un’s approach to doom is layered and nuanced, shot through with emotive qualities that seem to gently grab the listener softly, but before you really know what’s going on, you’re locked into the music’s orbit with an iron grip.
Beautifully epic, atmospherically potent, powerfully delivered, and melodically rich, Un have essentially recreated everything that was so wondrous about their debut album, only in a refined and hyper-emotive way. Quite simply, this is doom metal playing in the premier league.
