Leucosis - "Pulling Down The Sky" (2011)

LEUCOSIS "Pulling Down The Sky"

Year: 2011
Genre: Ambient Black/Doom Metal
Country: USA

Track List:
  1. Opening
  2. Pulling Down the Sky
  3. Approaching Lucidity
  4. Intermission
  5. Invention of the Monsters
  6. Hymn to the Forest of Pixels
  7. Incarceral Form
  8. The Hanging

Another release sent to me for a review by the band themselves. It isn't quite "cascadian black metal" (they're from Santa Cruz, California), but it's definitely influenced by the Cascadian scene (especially Velvet Cacoon / Clair Cassis). Their style was described as "ambient black metal" and "transcendental black metal with sweeping dynamics", but for me it's more like blackened doom/drone. The quality of production isn't the best, but still quite good for an underground BM release. This album is available for purchase by email ({AT}gmail{DOT}com) and costs $5, but it's free for download (the download link was provided by the band).
