It's safe to say the 2010 breakup of post-metal heavyweights Isis represented a welcome development by absolutely no one, with the demise of home label Hydra Head two years later just salt in the wound, but frontman Aaron Turner has been nothing.

Together on their new epic double album What One Becomes the trio walk the line between chaos and control. This sophomore album sees the band take a leap forward from their debut The Deal (2015) revealing a new side of Turners combustible songwriting and guitar playing. Fans of the legendary Isis and cult heros Old Man Gloom will not be disappointed. There is a profound anxiety that leaches through What One Becomes. SUMACs choreographed structures parallel the internal and personal struggles with anxiety. They seek to identify the source, devise a course of action, and confront that condition.

Sumac don't so much write songs as a series of ideas stitched together. This is both their greatest strength and greatest weakness as a band. On the one hand, they keep you guessing as to what's coming next, which keeps your attention. And there are some seriously great passages to be found: the final two minutes of sheer brute force of "Rigid Man"; the thrashy opening of "Will To Reach"; and the groove metal vibe that kicks off the second half of "Blackout" all demonstrate that the band can create interesting music. Ultimately, the burliness and dour, uneasy nature and the top-notch musicianship throughout elevate the overall quality of What One Becomes. Even the lyrics paint grey gloom: "Tears of pain, Seem as joyous rapture, We claw, we point, At mutilated loins, Faces pushed into the soil, we are cleansed". Sumac are an original voice in metal, and we certainly need more of that.

As stated earlier, this sophomore album really sees Sumac as a unit come together. I absolutely loved their first release. It was massive in scope and sound. However, What One Becomes truly shines as their intended sound and delivery. It’s slower, darker and much more nuanced in terms of emotional delivery. The long, dragged-out portions serve as the perfect entree to gorge your inner Stoner Metal fiend, while the more up-tempo and traditional Turner-sound is there for those who revel in his ability to craft a universe via six strings, various pedals and guitar cabinets. What One Becomes is truly marvelous album; one that will most assuredly anchor itself on a number of top ten album of the year lists six months from now. Top Banner (photo: Faith Coloccia).
