One track from each band, the Hooded contribution is pretty much what you would expect, reaching into the 9+ minute territory. Slow, dark, extremely heavy. New full length from these guys this year. Having no experience with Horse Latitudes prior to hearing their one song here I can't really make comparisons to previous works. It's slow and heavy and perfectly couples with the Hooded side. Different influences inspire these guys somewhat though, taking less from traditional death metal and more from stoner and old doom.
This first press was released with what the label has described as a faux leather sleeve. Doesn't really feel at all like leather, and of course it definitely doesn't smell like it, but I guess it looks so. All of the text, logos and headers etc are then embossed into that faux leather. As always, it's an A+ set up from Doomentia.
