about

"This is a very rich and diverse album that draw on many different influences, many whom I have a hard time placing. The music is really fascinating... Dreams Of A Cyclops would clearly be of most interest to fans of Pelican, 5ive, Neurosis, and other bands of approximately that style. Additionally, appreciating soundscape music shouldn't be underestimated as an incentive. Moreover, since this is a band who hold a high standard of musicianship it might even appeal to many outside that fanbase. Being so unusual as they are, they might even deserve to label their own separate fanbase. I sincerely hope that the Eastern European origins of this album won't force this band out of history because, to my ears at least, this band deserves to be acknowledged right alongside the best of it's kind." – by Arnstein H. Pettersen at "Doom-metal.com" (Belgium)

"EndName play a instrumental multi-dimensional, multi-layered assault of different metallic textures which is driven by some incredible guitar work. They lay down some wild riffage at times which is accented with electronic sounds while remaining extremely heavy with a bleak atmosphere. So diverse is their musical canvas that pin-pointing influences is close to impossible and really irrelevant. This is a album that flows incredibly well, so much so that if you not paying attention, you could assume its just one single epic track. They also manage to avoid all the usual cliches found in usual instrumental metal bands by creating a wall of sound that is rich in diversity by adding elements like tribal percussion's... As a big fan of instrumental albums, this is one of the best i have heard from the doom / sludge side of the fence. Chugging and plodding in places but forever changing, 'Dreams Of A Cyclops' is a hard album to ever get bored with. The irresistible, flawless way the songs flow make this a essential piece of work for the sludge / doom fan looking for something unique. It must also be noted, the great musicianship which is breath-taking at times and jaw-dropping at other times in its sonic intensity. Fans of early Neurosis, Isis and Pelican will dig this as well will lovers of pure guitar riff indulgence, there is also something for the sludge and doom fan but if you are looking for something outside of the usual, this is for you. The sound and production is crisp but also not over-produced and this recording is loud so crank it up. Highly recommend this one." – by Ed at "Doommantia" (USA)
