"The Elegiac Drone Epic...
The long durations allow Schlipper to create slowly evolving and subtly fluctuating drones that foster deep meditation. But the darkness and heaviness of said drones—which often surface after a beautifully placid introduction—manifest a tension that reminds you peace is not easily attained."
One senses the guitarist holing up in his studio in the wee morning hours conjuring ways to summon the apocalypse with down-tuned power chords ... Inevitably, the calm gets subsumed by gradually intensifying clamor. Thus, Schlipper reveals an underlying layer of beauty struggling to break through the world's chaos. Ultimately, [it] sounds like an elegy for the human race."
