Fans of cosmic-minded sludge and doom a la Cult of Luna and Minsk take heed: Swedish post-metal acolytes Moloken may be relatively unknown as they approach the release of their third full-length record All Is Left To See, but they’re beginning to pick up steam as a stand-out act to watch in the 2015 best-of contest. All Is Left To See promises to be the glorious oasis at the tail-end of a year surprisingly and relatively light on outstanding sludge and post-metal.
Take the record’s opening track “Subliminal Hymns” — the bite-sized headbanger is relatively simple and doesn’t cover much ground in its three-minute runtime, but it certainly hints at the greater kaleidoscopic nature of the record with the depth of atmosphere that bleeds from its grizzly sludge riffs. “Subliminal” is right; sometimes the darkest things are those which are only implied. Thirsty yet? Stream “Subliminal Hymns” after the jump.
CVLT Nation helps to further piece together the scope of All Is Left To See with another new track, “I Dig Deeper.” Further tracks will likely emerge in the coming weeks as Moloken prepare a November 13th North American release through Temple Of Torturous records. Pre-orders are available at this location.
