A Review of Lesser Glow’s Post Rock/Doom Album “Ruined”

Buzz, chatter, skreeches and general cracklings are noise particulates that are used as puppet strings, raising and animating this grim marionet. Ruined is at points caricaturing in stark and craving screams accompanied by slow, ritualistic pummeling with grimly buzzing guitars circling around the maelstrom. At other points in pale but vivid passages it yearns a despairs, a refreshing counterpoint to the weighty groove of its heavier elements.
