Abraham's contribution to this split record is one long and dark anthem to hair growing and depression. Now writing a new record, the bearded quintet experimented a lot with this track while keeping their own unique sound of low tuned black-sludge-beard-what-the-fuck-ever-metal. Absolute songwriting experts, they never leave any detail on the side and this collaboration was a good opportunity to challenge their own writing approach with having to deal with very short deadlines. The result is fucking epic.

Coilguns's is acting more like a patchwork here. Experimenting a lot as well, the band always tries to destabilize their listeners, even the die-hard ones. If the first two songs were recorded about a year ago, the third one is the result of one live session in France in April 2014 after a show. All three songs are very different, ranging from very low tuned straight hardcore à la Cursed to ambient arpeggios and up to some crazy 70's rock jam featuring Pete Adams from Savannah's heavy rock heroes Baroness. Nobody knows if any of these songs will represent any of the band's future sounds.
