Germany's doom oceanographers aim to evoke the lulling monotony and horrifying danger of an eternal nautical journey. Almost every song here exceeds nine minutes, usually progressing from tranquil stillness to torrential storminess as men fall overboard and the fearless crew encounters ferociously grumbling krakens, plesiosaurs and a Cyclops or two. There are moments of lachrymose, lagging beauty: acoustic intricacies, clean harmonies, guitars descending "Fathoms Deep Below" (as one title puts it) like sea snakes. But thar be some massive monsters o'er the port bow, and they will eat you up.
