Battle Helm Rating

I never get tired of writing “this is a band new to me” as that is mostly why I do this; to get to hear new bands all the time. I have no idea what Australian ENCIRCLING SEA are all about but I do like what I hear. They play a mix of post rock, black metal and sludge that you could call post metal if you like. I call it good. That is all I need to know. In a way I would like to call this doom death metal, or death doom metal. Because that is what it mostly reminds me of. Maybe even with traces of funeral and atmospheric metal. But you get my drift. This is not about to set and speed records but it could very well be looking for an award for being heavily cool. This impresses the hell outta me. Anders Ekdahl
