What could be more perfect than doom metal and whales? German band Ahab have modeled their sound and concept around Herman Melville's classic novel, Moby Dick, and seeing how it is one of my favorite books, I was drawn to The Call of The Wretched Sea. Taking a cue or two from Thergothon and Worship, Ahab's sound is as colossal and lumbering as the white whale itself. Of course it would be impossible to cover all the nuances and various themes covered in Herman Melville's original tome, but like Melville, Ahab do a fine job in capturing the absolute peril and vastness of the ocean. Doom metal and whales.
