Some of the more subdued moments on this release such as the first half of “The Bugles Blow, Fanned By Hysteria” take on a bit of a doom/stoner feel, not too unlike the excellent release from Spotlights earlier this year, with almost a jazzy atmospheric flair of a MONO. Speaking of which I really appreciate how they use percussion, mainly cymbals, to drive the atmosphere. It gives it this disorienting out of body type dissonance.  The album closer hits with a dizzying Swans-ian swarm of sound and passion that builds into some Pelican like grooves, and the live appeal of this band by now is certainly palpable. Glacier provide a soundtrack for your personal journey into a dense void. This is No Light Ever.
