Where thisquietarmy operates within the register of dreamy doom/drone soundscapes, infused with krautrock, post-rock, doom and even black metal, Year of No Light uses a more heavy vocabulary with their music firmly rooted in sludge and doom/drone metal. While the things that separates them are obvious, influences of shoegaze, ambient an psychedelic rock – to name just a few things – binds them. They most certainly have their own unique voice, as can be heard on this split. The collaborative tracks on this album demonstrate the aural magic that appears when the two bands combine their forces.
