The early releases are Metal, from Discouraged Ones onward they stopped. Their first full length Dance of December Souls is one of the best Doom Metal albums ever released and Brave Murder Day is great for the hypnotic desperation.

The non-metal albums are hit and miss. Last Fair Deal Gone Down and Discouraged Ones are amazing. I stopped following them after Viva Emptiness as that album was lackluster as was the album that followed it.
