The palette of feelings used to paint this musical landscape is rich and varied.

Lähdön Aika may be tapping into the immense power of the earth itself, or maybe the consciousness of communal humanity.
Abominion joins the party as a worthy successor to the prior releases, staying the course of magnificently grim blackened doom, while evolving in ever more spiteful directions.
Above all, Ruin is a transcendent album in which to lose oneself.
…Hallucinetic Violet Ignition is rich and flavorful, but you should keep some milk nearby, in case you can’t handle the heat.
This is, I would say, first and foremost stoner doom, and it has a side order of prog mixed in as well, but it also carries that aura of sludge metal (or maybe Sludge Metal is more apt).
I can count on any Sentient Ruin release to be well crafted, challenging in some way, and aesthetically interesting.
