Ahab, now on their IVth album, continue their maritime theme as the masters of nautical funeral doom tell the story of the crew of The Boats Of Glenn Danzig. Sailors, adrift in two life boats, beginning their Long Way Back From Hell, a tale of Blood And Tears as they are attacked by pre-Lovecraftian beasts Not Of This World in an attempt to make it home to London. Overall the mood in "The Boats of the Glen Carrig" is like the sea - sometimes quiet, sometimes violently, sinister and aggressive. Attention must be paid to cover that surely will start tops the list for the most beautiful art albums.
But fear not. You won’t see Ahab including dubstep or yarling about ex-girlfriends on this release. Fans of Ahab’s first two albums, who may still be skeptical of frontman Daniel Droste’s melodic croons, need look no further than the track The Weedmen.

Pessimism can be so beautiful: German nautic doomers Ahab have not only created their very own subgenre, they are also incomparable dabblers in solemn melancholy! The Boats of the Glen Carrig is a novel by William Hope Hodgson from 1907 that tells the gruesome story of survival after shipwreck: the ice-cold embrace of the sea this as always has been turned to molten lead in the utmost atmospheric manner by Ahab! Since the band& founding in late 2004, the four-piece has continuously worked its way to the top of (funeral) doom. supported by 15 fans who also own The Boats of The Glen Carrig. I can listen to this album multiple times in a row. The atmosphere Bell Witch create is astonishing.
