What is "drone" music?? Drone is a genre that is usually played on a guitar or bass,sometimes with drums/synths/electronic elements,and is played at a slow repetitious pace with an emphasis on inducing a state of trance or hypnosis.What is "Doom" or "Doom Metal"?? A genre of music played with guitar and/or bass with or without drums or vocals usually played very slow,tuned low and heavy.The vibe of this music is depressing,evil,entrancing,often evoking a sense of dread and/or despair. I suppose you could call Tecumseh's "Avalanche and Inundation" a combination of doom and drone but the genre classification isn't important.The fact is that this is slow,depressing and intricately-played dreadful mysterious music and one of the best albums you'll hear of its type.

The first song "Skies of Joy and Sorrow" fades in slowly with bass sound momentarily until the guitar comes crashing in,the whole vibe of this song is like a quiet gaze into a pollution-ridden sky,standing on the earth looking upwards and reflecting on lifes horror and its beauty,the song follows this pattern as it flows mostly with mass-dread and other times with calm.Its title fits it well.

Next is "Walking Alongside Death" with its audio themes of a dreadful stride through life and the tension washing over you like walls of aqua from a waterfall. It is like the feel of doing your best with what you have in life knowing that all the while both consciously and subconsciously that one day your journey will end completely.Or will it??....

The last song "Cascadia" is much like what the title references,the Cascadia faultline,one of the earths biggest plates that shifts and has been responsible for some of the worlds most powerful earthquakes.

This is one of my favorite albums i've bought in the last few years,its so great. For fans of Moss,Stumm,Fleshpress,Eyehategod,Earth or anyone that likes slow dark mysterious music.
