Album Review

The second release, and first full-length, by Virginia-based doom trio Salome (guitar, drums, vocals; no bass) gets better as it goes along. Doom metal itself seems to fly in the face of contemporary attention spans: songs are long, slow, and frequently monochromatic, and offer little of the catharsis metal has traditionally inspired. The album kicks off with "The Message" and "Terminal," two slowly grinding exercises in listener tolerance-testing. By the fourth track, "Epidemic," things have picked up, though; it's a very Slayer-esque song, despite being nearly 11 minutes long and broken into sections. The 18-minute "An Accident of History" is a noise interlude reminiscent of the tracks on the "ambient" second disc of Pain Killer's Execution Ground. The disc winds down with two more long, slow pieces, "The Witness" and "The Unbelievers." Salome's female vocalist, Kat Katz, has an unhinged howl that works well with the crashing, roaring music. The drums impose structure even at extremely slow speed, and the guitar (which is occasionally doubled, and even sounds a little like a bass sometimes on "The Unbelievers") does everything necessary to turn this disc's loudest moments seriously monolithic. Ultimately, it's more interesting than enjoyable, as is often the case with doom, but the band's intensity of purpose is admirable.

Not for everyone thats for sure

This is music for a select few. It's slow, heavy, sludgy, and it had a very ominous feeling. This is a genre known as Doom Metal. I am honestly surprised that this band is on iTunes. This doesn't seem like a seller much. For those however, that do like this kind of metal, this album is a treat. The vocals are closer to Post-Metal then Doom Metal, which makes it a bit more interesting. Most of the songs have a very dark, heavy feeling to them, and they generally move at a slower pace. However, some songs such as "Epidemic," Move at a much slower, but consistent rate. "An Accident of History," is a big song at over 17 minutes. I don't know how to describe this one other then just noise, as it has very long intervals of just a noise playing. It's not clear what it is, but trust me, it last for a while. (The 90 second preview iTunes has, is ONLY this noise,) and it gets louder as it goes on. To someone who isn't much into metal, they will listen to this and have no idea what the appeal is, and to be fair, Nor do I. Doom metal and this style of music appeals to me, and if it does to you as well, you should consider this album.

Long, slow, and ugly. Basiclly perfectly.

Killer guitar tone, killer drums, killer vocals.

Only the heaviest

I listen to everything in metal. My favorite subgenre is Doom/ sludge/ drone. Its always interesting to see a new take on it. Salome is one of the freshest faces. With Kat from Agoraphobic Nosebleed on vocals and guitar tuning that borders on gravitational pull and crisp tempo changing on the drums, Its one of the heaviest things I've ever heard. I recommend this to anyone in the metal community. Its heavy its inventive and its evil sounding.
