Review Type: 

No remorse and no regret is carved in the minds of all those taking part of the extreme metal ways of doom/sludge outfit North..

The melodies running through all the brutality on brilliant opener “Sentience”, and the variation on following tracks “Inimate fathers” and “Origins”  prove just that within the album's first minutes. What's more impressive is that hardly a track goes by without a couple of memorable, distinctive passages; the album is a joy to listen to, and delivered with great impact and you are thrown into the best components of doom, sludge, post rock and a little bit death. Ultraheavy shit and depending on your mental state you will find this wicked cool or dead boring. So, vocals are growling yet expressive, the mix and production are raw and very good, North may not be doing anything especially novel, but The Great Silence features such strong material, performed so well, that it doesn't feel the least bit derivative or insincere.
