The Angelic Process: Weighing Souls With Sand (4.5/5)

#7 out of 10
Non-Metal Album of 2007

Year: 2007
Label: Profound Lore
Genre: Doomgaze
TRT: 57:35

I first heard this record at the beginning of January last year, and it really took me by surprise. They're making music I would call doomgaze, a combination of doom and shoegaze. Which sounds weird, but works actually very well. The muddy production fits perfectly with what they're doing, and the vocals are buried under the music, giving them a celestial quality. I wish there were more bands doing this, because it's stunning, crushing and beautiful.
