A horrible hack

I was convinced this would be a Doom release given their name. However, Dommina aren't quite that predictable and actually play post-rock, combining the soft, gentle wanderings of Explosions In The Sky with the harsher sound of The Sea Like Lead, basically flipping between the two from time to time. It's not bad at all and if I hadn't heard it many times before I'd probably be hyping it. 'Kepler 10b' is a highlight as 5 minutes in they pull out a wonderful guitar passage, before returning to distortion and the drummer smashing his kit apart. There are a few other moments during the 42 minutes that make me think "wow, this is great" but many average ones too.
