Vattnet Viskar: "Apex"

Vattnet Viskar is Swedish for "the water is whispering", yet the band adopting this moniker is from... New Hampshire? Either way, they've got a definite post-black metal sound going on that's more associated with Cascadia than New England... lots of songs with ascending and descending waveforms (IE. extensive intros and outros), forlorn takes on shoegaze, etc. This style is arguably getting long in the tooth to just be getting around to your debut album using it, but VV sound anything but derivative here.
