Whitehorse - Progression

I got a heads up on Whitehorse's Progression from The Obelisk. Heard one track and I was sold. The review states that Progression is an album that inflicts "its dreary, darkened atmospherics well beyond the point of oppression", and this is truly dark doom with cavernous death metal growls, harsh blackened screams, and droney noises and electronics. The last song "Time Worn Regression" is a great example of how Whitehorse creates a crushing atmosphere by gradually adding more and more layers of noise, until it becomes almost too intense. Check it out below. Here are a few more reviews from Metal Archives and Cvlt Nation.
