GANGLION: Of the Deep: CD

I’m a little tongue tied on this one. I really feel I’m at a loss for words. Vocals that could be easily black metal in the screamy, anguished variety. Guitars that are not distorted but yet more bright and clean to give it, as best as I can describe, a jangley sound? Is that even a word? A bass player that seems to be in another room kind of free form jamming, yet hears enough of the band to be able to play along. Drums that are the binder here which seem mighty chaotic but is all well calculated. Rudimentary Peni goes black metal? Very interesting, but have to be in the right mood to listen to it.
