A very heavy doom metal sound starts off the album and after awhile aggressive vocals which also have a melodic edge at times are added onto the recording while the music also mixes in the heaviness of sludge along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of groove and melody.
Elements of southern and stoner metal can be heard in some of the guitar riffing while the music also incorporates a lot of 90's era industrial and death metal influences along with the solos and leads being done in a very dark yet melodic fashion, some songs also add in a small amount of clean playing and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction.
Pale Horseman creates another recording that remains true to the sludge and doom metal mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover apocalypse, depression, sorrow, drugs and misanthropy themes.
On my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Pale Horseman and if you are a fan of sludge and doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Final War" "Bereavement" "Pale Rider" and "Phantasmal Voice". 8 out of 10.
