Just got recommended this new demo from a doom channel I am subscribed to on YouTube and its intriguing title and cool artwork caught my attention. It's essentially sludgy doom but with more character than that often implies. At least it has its own sound and a somewhat atypical un-generic approach conceptually.
One's to hopefully keep an eye on.

Just listened to Into the Cave there. It's a bit more higher tempo than I was expecting after reading your description, but that's not a bad thing!
Cool slow outro to it with nice harmonies.

Kind of a clean production too and busy enough riffing. The first song is the standout,  but it's all decent.

Really like the name and the artwork but not the music.

I think there are some interesting ideas in there that deviate from the template. Some of it is a bit jammy which wouldn't really hold my attention for long but I think they could develop into something quite unique if they opt to focus on the more creative, distinctive elements.
