A very dark yet heavy doom metal sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls a few seconds later which also leads up to high pitched sludge screams being added onto the recording and clean playing can also be heard at times along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and after awhile the music starts incorporating more atmospheric elements as well as adding in a brief instrumental before returning back to a heavier direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Grim Ravine plays a musical style that takes atmospheric doom metal and sludge and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Grim Ravine are a very great sounding atmospheric sludge metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shrine of Misery" and "Vacant Mass". 8 out of 10.
