To say Stream From the Heavens is good would be an understatement. It's a monolith, a testament to swirling winds and autumnal depression. It's the embodiment of depression. The guitars sound like the gentle washing of water along the shoreline, and the drums pound a slow beat, a march towards the burial. Thergothon manage to craft something truly amazing here, not just something that rides off of it's legendary status.

Many say that Thergothon were the first funeral doom band, and while I disagree (Mordor has that distinction, with traces of industrial, ambient, and black metal mixed with the funeral doom), I do believe Thergothon perfected it. The way the keys hover uneasily above the swirling, effected guitars, the way the dirty and clean vocal harmonies play throughout the first track; it's all here. Speaking of the first track, “Everlasting” opens the album up with the growls we are all used to. Then, as mentioned before, clean vocals come in, but they sound distant. It might have been unintentional, but they created a very desolate song, a portrait of being lost and alone. The guitars swirl in a melancholic way throughout the song, and drums pound the doomed beat. It's the perfect way to start an album.
