Around the turn of the Millennium Floor occupied a genre of one, mixing melody and teeth-rattling riffs. Back again with only their second album proper, Oblation shows that sometimes good things are worth waiting for.

The template of the songs is much the same as in previous years; leaden-paced doom riffs with Brooks’ grungy, melodic vocals. It’s a winning combination, but the band’s best trick is managing to create an album in line with their history but doesn’t play like a tired rehash. Genuinely enjoyable to listen to and still the only band doing this kind of music.
