Salome - Terminal

Salome's final album Terminal from 2010 was added to the Profound Lore Records Bandcamp. This is a rather unique take on doom with a guitarist, a drummer, a female vocalist and no bass. Here are a few few reviews from Don't Count On It Review and Heavy Blog is Heavy.

Most reviews I read have issues with the drone/noise track An Accident of History. The Heavy Blog is Heavy reviewer had this to say

I have heard this song individually twelve times, trying to see the art behind the track. Now, keep in mind that the track is 17:05. That is 204.6 minutes. Over 3 hours was spent trying to understand this track. And I hear nothing but random radio crackles

Now that's dedication,

  1. I gave this one a 4.5 out of 5, and then went on to call it the best doom/and/or/sludge album of 2010. Absolutely love it.

  2. It didn't really click for me. I think it is the missing bass that does it.

    But I have a feeling that I should give it another try or two...
