Of Legend- Cleric Of Samsara

After putting off getting started on reviewing anything, i've come across a band that made me not want to procrastinate any longer. These guys take all the things that i love about atmospheric metal and deliver it with a purpose. The riffs plod along like good doom should, but never dwell on things longer than necessary. In a style of music that usually winds up a competition of song length, Of Legend deliver the goods while never overstaying their welcome. The atmosphere is dense and the songs are heavy, but not so much that it takes away from the meditative nature of the compositions. The vocals are powerful and delivered in a Cult Of Luna-like fashion. Definitely worth hearing.
Get it on bandcamp (name your own price- always a plus)
