The Angelic Process - Weighing Souls With Sand

Profound Lore, 2007

Super-epic drone metal which explores the shoegaze-metal blissed out & heavy realm better than most, a guy-girl duo with clean empassioned vocals nicely buried in the mix. Similar ideas going on as earlier Jesu, but these guys are going more for ethereal majesty of Lycia's chasm-reverb, the keyboard-led and guitar-filled chord progressions hint more of old Projekt shoegaze-darkwave acts, but not too much. This stuff is as heavy as old Skullflower or peak Grey Daturas work. Has its small flaws throughout, but it's kind of a masterpiece, really.
