Cultivating the trend of less-heavy features, up next is Finland's The Chant. Clocking in at somewhere between Anathema and Katatonia, their new album A Healing Place is a gloomy, dreary prog soundscape cut into 6-minute-plus bursts of melancholy ambience. While the early album is fifty shades of gaze, "Riverbed" and "The Black Corner" ease onto the accelerator, leading into "Ocean Sparks," which with its uncharacteristic pulse and tight structure could very well be the album's single. "Ocean Sparks" is definitely the album's summit, though; the final few tracks regain the album's earlier placidity, like ripples fading from the face of a pond. If you're in the mood to get moody, you can do a lot worse than A Healing Place.
