Brother/Ghost - Black Ice (2009)

This short album starts and ends with epic anthems
that build up with gentle drones and swells of

Acoustic guitar vie with xylophone melodies over
an almost spoken vocal before distorted guitars
kick in and things go kinda post-hardcore.

Although post-rock is the obvious tag, there is a
lot more jarring influences at work here.

All the tracks flow into each other really well,
encouraging you to listen all the way through.

A work of delicate beauty that builds into
something much more sinister as it progresses.
