Tethered to a dying animal is a Doom/Sludge/Noise band from San Antonio US, although i shouldn't really say "band", because all musical matter is generated in one guy's mind and so is all of the instrumentation and vocals.
This ep is really well produced and written. The brutally low Guitar sound reminds me of Bongripper while the overall sound leans more towards bands like Old Man Gloom or even Khanate but more dynamically and directly performed. The clean vocals introduce a Post-Metal harmony that traces back to bands like Amen Ra and here and there you can hear hints of Death-Metal guitar techniques.
Despite the wide variety of sound colors applied, the ep does feel like one entity, an entity that is impressing to say the least (even the dark ambient outro sounds promising). I'm really looking forward to see (or preferably 'hear' ) what this guy has in store for us in the future.
