The Angelic Process - Weighing Souls With Sand (2007)

Overwhelming. That is what The Angelic Process is. Nothing more, nothing less. When popping the disc in the cd-player the first thing noticed was the comparison with Nadja. Those who are unfamiliar with Nadja, this is an 'Ambient Drone Doom' project of Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff that release multiple full-lengths each year. They sound quite similar as they both have a monstrous sound with crushing bass, followed by buzzing guitars and tribal drums.

This is the kind of album that you need to experience for yourself to have an inkling of what's going on. For me everything about this album blends together with raw emotion. The magnitude of power that the music exhibits is stunning. Combining the heaviness and, at times, brutality with utter splendor, this album spans genres and mindsets impressively and distinctly.


  1. I don't like the comparisons to nadja, at least, on a superficial level. This band's unique enough for it not to matter.

    also, what's a cd plater?

  2. This is THE greatest album of all time. Period.

    1. Absolutely...It's hard to describe it. It transcends the typical musical experience.
