Alaskan is a three member band from Ottawa, Canada. They have released five albums so far. ”Despair, Erosion, Loss” is their fifth and latest album. Their music combines post metal, sludge and hardcore
The Lp contains six songs. Ι have to be honest, i have not heard their previous releases but this is one hell of an album. Nice production, great riffs, awesome vocals, also nice atmospheric parts. Some songs reminded me of Downfall of Gaia, while others a little bit from Fall of Efrafa. My personal favorites from ”Despair, Erosion, Loss” are ”Sacrifice”, ”Fiend” and ”Submerged”. For example listen to ”Fiend” in 06:00. I mean, this is one epic, massive part.
Fans of Downfall of Gaia, Fall of Efafa, The Ocean are gonna love ”Despair, Erosion, Loss”. As for me i’m hoping for an Alaskan live in Athens. Until then here are some links :
