Format: Audio CD
I've seen *shels described as postmetal, metalcore, postrock and a million other things. For mine, they are at the metal end of postrock, with some nice metally vocals tossed in. You'd probably consider them a bit more proggy than the likes of Godspeed, but rather less arty than Isis. There's a lot more lyricism than bludgeoning riffs, but the power's there if that's what you like.

A lot of music in this space strives for the monumental. Bands like Cult of Luna and Callisto want to overwhelm you. But *shels are a lot more, well, fruity. Their palate is a lot broader and they're all the better for it. On a couple of the longer tracks, The conference of the birds and In dead palm fields in particular, they really hit the highs, but the menace is controlled, never losing their grip on the lovely melodies that distinguish them from the crowd (although each has some belting heavy stretches). This would definitely appeal to fans of Isis (particularly those who aren't so keen on the doomy growling) but also to postrockers who are willing to go a few steps heavier, particularly those who enjoy the shifting dynamics of Godspeed.

The rock sound review was spot on. I am speechless, this is easily the album of the year and a historic release! It just keeps getting better and better with these guys. I thought Mahu modo was great, but it's nothing compared to this. it's hard to explain.

i'm in love.

thank you!

This is a great album. I bought it after purchasing Plains of the Purple Buffalo on a whim. Not disappointed. But the track listing on the back of the album artwork appears to be wrong... I've listened to the first track endlessly (absolutely epic) and I thought it was called 'The Ghostwriter'. Then I noticed my stereo displaying a different name and have discovered track 1 is actually 'The Conference of the Birds' and there isn't even a track called 'The Ghostwriter'! Or 'City of the Swan' for that matter, which is track 3 on the back cover... A trifle confused, but a fantastic listen nevertheless.
