First few minutes of this and you think you've got it pegged: big grumbly riffs, big grumbly vocals and an overall apocalyptic vibe. So far, so Neurosis/Melvins, right? Right. As 'Atropos' oozes forward, however, it begins to shift between forms and styles, lobbing in the occasional sloping post-hardcore element here and a rough-hewn lump of noise-rock there until you're none too sure as to where things might be heading.
