iamspoonbender Awesome album by an awesome band. If you get that chance to see them live do it. Then you'll experience the real power behind their sound. Favorite track: Solar Chamber.

Matthew Toye Lycus write immense and sorrowful tunes. I didn't think they could top themselves after 'Tempest'. I was totally wrong. This is excellent and haunting doom. Favorite track: Obsidian Eyes.

about

Oakland, CA quartet LYCUS return with Chasms, an intensely powerful and emotive masterpiece of funereal doom metal. Recorded at Atomic Garden Studios with producer Jack Shirley and featuring art from celebrated Italian mastermind Paolo Girardi (Inquistion, Bell Witch), Chasms is four immense tracks of deep, unbridled gloom. Complete with massive clean / bellowing vocal arrangements, atmospheric cello accompaniments, and enormous compositions, LYCUS have created another mournfully expressive work of timeless doom.
