The Chasm bring new meaning to the term "epic" with their unique brand of majestic death metal. Their debut shows much more of a doom influence than their later material would, and proves to be a desolate, eerie, and powerful album. The production is raw, but gives it some character, making it a bit more obvious that this is earlier in their career. They have always been noted for their involved songwriting and even here the songs have quite a lot going on in them. Give this well crafted album a listen.
