Thaumogenesis is a sonic journey well worth taking for any adventurous doom fan. It should be noted that this album is one 61 minute track, fully instrumental, and in many ways represents shoegraze and ambient a lot more dominantly then 'doom'. The bulk of the song is made up of heavy bass driven riffs, rounded with a dominant underpinning of drone. It's an unconventional, but quite beautiful release.
Beginning softly with a pastoral, dreary five minutes of guitar nestled amongst some ambient undertones, the song suddenly bursts to life, the drums kick in and we begin the most comforting doom journey I think I've ever had. It's quite a relaxing listen despite its doom metal moniker, maybe not fully upbeat, but introspective; thoughtful. You may not agree, but it's melacholy nature certainly helps me to write and feel a brief peacefulness.
For that alone I can't give it any less then four stars.
