Saudade -a long lifetime of dying slowly

Saudade lures you in with a long intro that will have you thinking you just walked into an instrumental post rock band rehearsal.  Not before long the band is taking off into some extremely fast and screamy intensity. By the time you get to track 3 "Drone Distance" you might have already forgotten the slow, relaxing introduction.

But alas, the band knows how to navigate their peaks and valleys.  About two minutes into "Drone Distance" we're brought back down to a beautiful instrumental interlude that reminds me very much of some Portraits of Past material.

We're witnessing some professionals here who have honed their sound and have no room for mistakes.

Check it out here.
