Reverence To Stone is the band's new album, a two track 35 minute journey into and out of a vast expanse of dark, light, shadow, heartache, depression and triumph. The 14 minute track 'When We Emerged' is an updated version of song that goes back to Samothrace's demo recording from 2007, the one that attracted the attention of 20 Buck Spin in the first place. Awash in plodding heaviness, shimmery melodicism and the wrought vocals of Bryan Spinks the track has been reborn anew, the full weight of it brought forth. ?A Horse Of Our Own' might be considered the centerpiece here. 20 minutes representing the most recent songwriting of the band, showing the level to which Samothrace has advanced in crafting long, slow-building moods and atmospheres but with close attention to memorable song craft and tasteful musicianship. Spinks' midwestern bluesy soloing comes out more than ever before, complimenting the post-doom riffs in ways only hinted at previously. The adept rhythm section of Dylan Desmond and Joe Axler laying down a cavernous din of physicality and timed precision over which the guitars delicately unwind, interweave and soar. Reverence To Stone has been a long time coming for Samothrace, and for the following the band inspired in the wake of Life's Trade. The LP represents a new beginning for the band and a point of departure from which they looks toward the future.
