Jyri Straechav This EP is really just a one half an hour song by Old Man Gloom. But it does showcase both the ambient soundcsapes of Old Man Gloom that I love, and the barely-restrained sludge and metal that they excel at. There's not a whole lot I can say that the song definitely holds your attention for the whole span, and is along with "Christmas" album one of my favorites from Old Man Gloom.

Deserts in your eyes a sea of sands and midnite stars losing touch. I become the sky there is our last kiss... Now push on proceed to oblivion Submerged in fluid suspended in thought I reach the crest of the tallest peak I can see for miles Breathe deep Breathe deep, engine sounds drowning me Drones and hums fill my bones, open eyes wide Breathe deep, static lights blinding eyes Descent into signals, heart dies Breathe deep, lulled by clicks and cycles held high from fires, a last breath Sleep deeper, forget all that is known Submit to the sun, regress to life
