Noisey streams new SOOTHSAYER album in its entirety

Finally, reputed site Noisey streams the Irish doom band's album in its entirety HERE. Editor Kim Kelly wrote this about the release -

"Soothsayer's take on doom is epic and unorthodox, borrowing more influence from atmospheric black metal's triumphantly climbing scales and melodic death metal's pointed harmonies than traditional doom's passive tempos... their new album truly is one of 2016's finest hidden gems."

Genre - Atmospheric Doom/Sludge
Release Date - December 30th, 2016
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records

Soothsayer from Ireland return to unveil their sophomore album after putting out an incredible debut. The new masterpiece, 'At This Great Depth' sees the band plumbing new emotional depths, writing seamless gargantuan songs, and merging subtle myriad influences from a broad outlook on life to forge a cohesive, powerful sound unlike any other. This is atmospheric doom/sludge having a dreamy quality to it that stirs up buried memories by way of its strangely alluring riffing and unconventional songwriting. These two timeless monoliths, one 16 minute long and the other lasting for eight, are symbolic of both the suffering as well as the endless glimmers of hope flashing throughout them in life. Soothsayer's doom is emotive, vast and fulfilling.
