Ahab - The Divinity Of Oceans (2009)

Nautic, slow, yes, like a fucking funeral in a stormy neverending ocean, that's how i would describe this band, although some people label them as a sort of commercial doom metal, due in part of the label Napalm Records, but i give a flying fuck actually, this is one of the best funeral doom bands ever (almost all funeral doom bands are awesome, another good point of this subgenre), the truth is, that this sounds with an obvious death metal influence which is not bad at all, i would say that this death metal influence takes all the melancholic and sad feeling of the tracks, because it doesn't sound like perpetual sadness or something (very common in funeral doom), but sounds more slow and very fucking heavy, angry and desperate, leading to utter madness if you will, they tell us the story of the braves oceans and also of the famous book of Herman Melville "Moby Dick" a whale hunter, i'm sure it doesn't need any review, one of the best works ever made, an epic book, so if you like Tolkien or Lovecraft you'll love this book, and if you like bands that inspire their lyrical themes in Tolkien or Lovecraft, you'll also love this band. Simply powerful, perfect for a sunny day, i know you hate sunny days as much as i do...
