Bloodiest is a Chicago-based post-metal/doom act and they consist of members/ex-members of bands like Yakuza, 90 Day Men, Atombombpocketknife, Circle of Animals, Follows, Lying in States, Minsk and Sterling. Descent is their debut album released few months ago by Relapse. I would describe their music as repetitive, minimalistic, doom-influenced post-metal and while it isn't as heavy as you possibly wanted, it creates an absolutely gloomy, dense atmosphere. There aren't any dull or bad moments in this one, only epic moments of dark beauty. The term atmospheric is quite controversial and I have to say that when I see it in a band's description, I'm scared a little bit. Fortunately in this case my fear didn't stop me from hearing "Descent". And I was totally rewarded. This is what I call "atmospheric".
