9/20

Metal is always good at evoking the sound of lost hopes and the ravishing beauty of the emotional abyss. Inter Arma understands. "Sky Burial" is the sound of a Richmond, Virginia crew dragging the corpse up a Blue Ridge mountain, full of noisy drones and mathed-out overtones of fuzz and bellowing and complicated (sometimes very complicated) shadows lasting 10 minutes or more. Impossibly dense guitars soar and dive like buzzards, a flock devouring the fallen.
