Personally not at all a fan of Kenoma as I feel that a doom instrumental band should never really be done, due to the fact it’s the vocals that made the band enjoyable or at least that’s what I feel like. The clean guitar bits are personally the only thing I enjoy in this release which is disappointing as I had high hopes for this but was shot down straight away after listening to just the first track. I can find some bits enjoyable but most of it just literally sounds like noise and is the same over and over again.
I could not really choose a favourite song on this as I couldn’t find a track at all which was actually enjoyable enough to say yeah I liked that and have a reason to. Everything just sounds so bland and distorted to much to understand what is actually going on in the release which is a very big let down from the guys in Kenoma. Maybe some people will enjoy this but unfortunately it was not for me. Everything just seems odd to the ear and actually gives me a headache and I have to find something else to do while listening to it as it just doesn’t keep me interested in it at all.
If you’re after a doomy instrumental band then this band will probably be for you but personally I am not a fan and I am really wish they had some vocals on this release to make it that bit more enjoyable which I think that was all that was lacking on this release.
Kenoma seem to have the right idea with the doom sound but it's lacking a lot without vocals.
