Review

The band attempts as raw a sound as they could possibly muster, this album barely functions above the demo/4-track level, fuck it could have been recorded on an old tape recorder except for all the voluminous swelling of the guitars. Oddly enough, I have no complaints about the actual production of the album, just that they could be on to something interesting, and that the band's minimal approach would not suffer from some better writing. Still, Islands may have a few moments that appeal to the fan of psychedelic/shoegaze-influenced experimental black metal, and it was probably the most memorable of their albums thus far. - 4/5
