This is mysterious stuff. Sumerian legends form the theme of this album made by musicians with equally mysterious names and even more mysterious sounds.

It's an odd blend of ambience and weird sounds and a bit of slow, grinding black metal grimness. It's both soothing and...well...disturbing at the same time.

Do I like it? Yeah, in a way I do. It has an element of ambience that you can sink into if you're in the right mood, some of the times I listened to it, I loved it, other times I couldn't cope with it at all. That's also a quality in music or, if you like, art.

I like Goatpsalm for doing this, because it's so obviously not something anyone would do, and that takes some guts in the sometimes conservative metal circles.

It's hard for me to sell this as an instant classic, but on the other hand, it does have cult potential.

Worth checking out - keep your mind open!
