Genre : Instrumental post-metal / Drone
Jakob really found their own genre since their beginnings. Their first album, Subsets of sets, already features these kind of cold instrumental melodies, soft and gentle most of the time, with heavily distorted parts surfacing at some point, including drones and huge walls of sound. This recipe, however, does not fail a single second in that release, which is subtle and violent at the same time, and can't lead to any boring moment, since those heavy breakdowns completly change the feel often enough. And yet, atmosphere is kept consistent and logical. Maybe we would just have enjoyed some more droning parts, but if you're looking for a calmer, yet mature and somehow dark sound, more post-rock oriented, this one should definitely please you.
