Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine metal, shoegaze and post rock together to create a sound of their own along with some soft and clean playing and melody being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding post metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the dark atmosphere of the album.
Vocals when they are utilized are mostly sludge/hardcore style screams and growls along with a brief use of spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with most of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Sky Burial are a very great sounding atmospheric, post metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Road Marked By Portents" and "From Out Of Obscured Light". RECOMMENDED BUY.
