Deutschland duo Noekk (stage names Funghus Baldachin and F.F. Yugoth) do only four "songs" here, but they add up to 34:25 of music thanks to 14:26 closer "The Rumour and the Giantess," which concludes with a gloomily recited and Teutonic-accented monologue presumably about the end of the world. It's also quite admirable how "Song of Durin" climaxes its manly-voiced sludge operetta in a sky-raising group chorus, and how "How Long Is Ever" gets whittled down to extremely slow, super-spaced-out keyboard notes for a couple minutes. Not bad for a band named for an imaginary sea creature!
