The first track after the short intro is portraying the heaviest the band has to offer. Think of Earthless, a melodic type of stoner rock. Desert'Smoke make use of having two guitarists in the ranks.
But also important in Desert'Smoke's sound is that the rhythm section is quite diverse. The drummer and bass player are really present, filling a lot of open spaces, fitting for this type of music. The guitarists offer their layers in slightly different tones so you clearly hear both at the same time, sometimes complementing by providing different layers, sometimes battling, making your head spin like this type of music is supposed to.
