Omega massif - Karpatia

Genre : Instrumental post-metal / Sludge

Raw, heavy, brutal at times, that's how Karpatia is. Most of the time it depicts barren landscapes through slow, loud chords and powerful rhythms. However, this album is subtle enough to add just a couple melodic lines from time to time, to avoid being boring. And it's really successful, heaviness makes its job, but ambient riffs, often kept as backgrounds, give more layers to this sound, and makes it a really enjoyable listen, although associated with desolate darkened landscapes because of deep and pitched-down walls of sound. A journey through a shadowed night forest, or a barren rocky desolation, how you feel it is up to you.

Check out Im Karst and Steinernes Meer to enjoy this raw heaviness. And follow Omega massif on Facebook.
