Alright then, what do you get when you combine elements of classic prog/psychedelic rock, doom/post-metal, Bergtatt-era Ulver black metal, and traces of folk and jazz? If your answer is ‘a hodgepodge of musical styles’, then a) thanks, Captain Obvious, and b) you’re only partly correct, for Dreadnought (and by proxy their new album A Wake In Sacred Waves) are more than just the sum of their collective tastes and influences. On this four-track, 53-minute tour-de-force of pure imagination and unbridled musicianship, they shape their own vision into even more coherent arrangements than on 2015’s stellar Bridging Realms, which was hailed as one of the best metal releases of that year.
