Once again, I'm late to the party on this one. I've been on a self-imposed posting hiatus for some time now, and I apologize for that. Thankfully Chris has been killing it here, but I'm trying to get back in the swing of things. Anyway, this little release is from May and i just ran across it, buried in my email. If you've followed this blog in the past you should know I'm a massive fan of Siberian Hell Sounds. For this release, they team up with Travels for a split of epic proportions. Each band delivers a single track, seamlessly merging from one composition to the next. Ishtar is a marked departure from the grinding riff warfare that has made Siberian Hell Sounds a name amongst heavy music fans. Paying tribute to their post-metal influences SHS delivers nine minutes of droning ebb and flow, a perfect companion for Travels' darkly epic opener Chasing Circles. Both tracks can be listened to and downloaded on a name-your-price basis on their respective Bandcamp pages.
