Nautic Doom Metal - that's the very special genre this dark German band is into. Not too far away from the pitch-black realm of Funeral Doom, the latest Ahab compositions also spin the yarn of the moving seafaring tale they already had begun spinning on their other albums. The songs on "The divinity of the oceans" are monolithic moraines of darkness and despair, and if you dare to listen extremely concentrated to those frightening tantalising vocals of axe man Daniel Droste, you might be in for some pretty uncomfortable nightmare sessions... In spite of their stuff being more on the sedate and calm side, Ahab demonstrate their creative skills by spicing it up with attractive melodies.
