Rest in peace.
weighing judgment with ears

i thought this cd was pretty good, but not that great. Don't get me wrong, the listener will find satisfaction in songs such as Million Year Summer and Dying in A Minor; these are indeed well-constructed masterpieces. As for the rest of the album, there seems to be a prevalence of choppy samples along with undecided fill ins; the cd, at least to my listening experience, could have smoothed over some of the noticeable rough spots. Weighing Souls with Sand embellishes a destination and description of ambient doom, but has nowhere near reached the summit and creativity of bands such as Nadja.
Realistically their is no going back

So of course many of you know, the man that had a very good deal to do with creating the project and writing the music did commit suicide. Which is just a shame considering where he would've not ever gotten a chance to do- play guitar. His hand had been annihilated from an injury years ago before he had really started writing for this album. When people basically were telling him left and right that he may not be able to play anymore- well you can see how that ended up. I consider this one of the few albums that I would place on a top 10 for being absolutely one of the most underrated albums of all time. Its up there with Filth, or Crocodiles and Loveless. The cruel twist of fate is that had he produced more material it would've just been impossible for him to play it himself. Since he was behind so much of this album, its just impossible to think that someone else could've done what he did. So we are left at a dead end, when a man was unable to continue in a direction that people often compare to Nadja's musical direction. Which is silly, I heard Nadja years before Angelic Process and they are just a different focus in a similar genre. I would say that Angelic Process had more structure in their melodies and it plays like a dark void altered universe "Loveless" or any shoegaze album really. Which makes it more than the sum of its parts. I recall listening to this until the end and I was just blown away. So blown away that I went on to listen to it probably 20 or 30 more times. I've listened to a lot of albums, but this one really captured my imagination of where music might be going. Alas, we can only sit around and talk about reviews. This album is a beautiful thing to exist, but it is likely never going to escape its creators fate.

Overpowering, effulgent, efflorescent, cinematic, HEAVY. A few words to describe this album. If you're a fan of Meshuggah, Sunn O))), Dark Suns, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, et al. then you might really like this record. The aim of this music seems to be the production and sonic elements and it really is a euphoric wall/waterfall of sound. The vocals are also reduced to an instrument basically as the lyrics are, perhaps intentionally, hard to understand but add a lot to the ambience. I'm not good at reviewing music, if it can really be done at all. Listen before you purchase or download.

As a kid I used to be into lots of different kinds of metal: black, heavy, doom and whatnot. However, I thought that this phase was way behind me. Then I heard about the Angelic Process and listened to some samples from this album, which weren't like anything I'd known before. So I decided to give it a try and got their first release. I must say I was quite unimpressed, but with time it definitely grew on me and I made up my mind about getting "Weighing...". Boy did it blow me away! Absolutely atmospheric and musically intricate with parts of intensity comparable to symphonic crescendo. And the addition of vocals, though in the background, makes it even more interesting. More accessible than their debut and strongly recommended!
