"Humming" begins with some sound effects and background noises which start getting more harsh as the song moves on setting up the mood for some high pitched screams and after awhile you can hear some background demonic vocal sounds.
"Embers" begins with powerful drums, heavy guitar riffs and high pitched screams, staying int that direction for a few minutes and after a few minutes the guitars vanish and the song goes more into an ambient noise direction.
"Water Ride" begins with drone guitar riffs and drums which lead to some industrial/noise sound effects, whispers and high pitched screams and you can hear some powerful bass playing in the background and a few minutes later the music slows down a bit and goes more into bass playing and industrial sounds while also keeping around the vocals and towards the end it goes into a more pure noise direction.
"Worm" begins with some drum playing which leads to some powerful bass playing and heavy guitar riffs along with some background power electronics which also set up the mood for some melodic vocals and after a few minutes you can hear a brief use of distorted guitar leads as well as the vocals getting alot more aggressive.
"Widowkeeper" begins with some noise effects and after a minute spoken word parts start kicking in and as the song moves on drums make their way into the mix which leads to some heavy guitar riffs which in return sets up the mood for some high pitched screams and deep growls and the song stays in the same direction till the end.
"Vulture" begins with some heavy guitar amp distortion and drone style riffs which leads to some drums and after awhile powerful bass playing and high pitched screams make their presence known and as the song moves in power electronics make their way into the mix briefly and the bass takes over as the lead instrument.
"This Horrible Chamber" begins with some clean guitar riffing which leads to some whispers and after awhile noise loops and guitar amp distortion make their presence known and takes the music into a darker direction setting up the mood for some high pitched screams and harsh power electronics and as time goes by drums start making their way into the mix.
Song lyrics cover trauma, fear and rage, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Gnaw are a very great sounding hybrid of noise, industrial and doom metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Embers" "Worm" and "This Horrible Chamber". RECOMMENDED BUY.
