Ocean sounds start off the album along with some winds before adding in post rock style synths and spoken word thoughts and after a few seconds the music gets more heavy and atmospheric while also adding in melodic guitar leads and the vocals also start displaying more aggression which also adds in a touch of extreme metal.
Clean playing and programmed beats can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the songs also mix in a great amount of ambient elements while also being very progressive at the same time and black metal screams can also be heard in the music at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while some songs also mix in traces of electronic music.
Postcards From Arkham plays a musical style that takes post rock and progressive metal and mixes them together with a touch of black metal to create something very original, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics are inspired by the writings of H.P Lovecraft, E.A Poe and H. Murakami.
In my opinion Postcards From Arkham are a very great sounding mixture of progressive metal and post rock with a touch of black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Aeon Echoes" "Elevate" "Woods Of Liberation" and "One World Is Not Enough". 8 out of 10.
