As one of the dual Neurosis vocalists, Steve Von Till has long been a stentorian voice rising up from the bowels of the doom metal Goliaths. As a solo artist however, he’s a Cormac McCarthy-esque seer of the limits of Americana.

His latest solo release, No Wilderness Deep Enough, paints on a grander canvas than previous offerings; Von Till is a terse but poetic observer of desolation that still finds a beauty and solace in the ruins that have been left behind. The weightless synth backing of tracks like The Old Straight Track may recall Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ work on Ghosteen, but elsewhere the solemn strings of Shadows on the Run outline the work’s true agenda: an elegy for worlds that have gone or may never be.
