More Info

"Zhfliessende Lava-Gitarren-Drones, unglaublich tief und schwer und langsam und von unterirdischer Schnheit... ein sgend-vibrierender Overkill von Stephen OMalley (KHANATE, BURNING WITCH) und Greg Anderson (GOATSNAKE)." [Drone Rec.]

"Bizarre ambient space metal... Instrumental doom without drums, Flight of the Behemoth is best likened to Fripp and Enos No Pussyfooting gone metal. Like a metal meditation album, the space dirges seek to induce hallucinations in the listener. Im not kidding. This is a fascinatingly warm ambient album that envelops you but it has a dark tone that is done very artistically. There is power here to change your mood and reduce your heart rate after a mere 30 seconds of play. The long notes of the guitars bleed slowly, continually coating the walls of the listening space with hypnotic resonance. After only a few listens it is still very difficult to tell the tracks apart, but this is not an album where the creation of distinct tracks was the goal, it is far more along the lines of a single track divided into movements..."
