Weighing Souls With Sand (2018 Plotkin remaster)

Death & Technology This is the desiccated carcass of shoegaze, buried in the scorched-earth reality of black metal, born of a sunburned major key and infinitely bright distortion. The production is correctly brickwalled. A scorching, pixellated wall of guitars rises over obviously programmed tribal drums, oppresses, blinds your ears, bleaches your bones. Though not my favorite of their disco, it's the most consistent. Favorite track: Dying in A-minor (2018).

Dennis Sun This is the CD that I never imagined would come to life, after I missed the original version. It feels great to finally grab a physical copy. Favorite track: Sleepwritten (2018).

Praise for Weighing Souls With Sand:

Macon, Georgia’s The Angelic Process have often been called “drone doom,” but you’re not going to find much in common between them and the likes of Khanate or Sunn0))). No, their intense and massive sound is somewhere between shoegaze and crushing industrial, almost as if Justin Broadrick kept the dark heaviness of Godflesh and somehow applied it to the grace of Jesu — but with the kind of mournful melodies that can only come from doom metal. Weighing Souls With Sand, the group’s second and final album, is absolutely devastating in its blend of power and beauty. There’s something altogether fearsome about the crushing sonics of a track like “The Promise of Snakes,” and yet, it’s the beauty of it all that really gets to you. Sadly, guitarist Kris Angylus took his own life shortly after this was released, bringing the band to a tragic end, albeit one with an absolute wonder of a swan song. (Treblezine)
