Dan seemed pretty hyped on this album, but by then I’d already listened to it about a half dozen times and wasn’t quite getting it. It has many fine ingredients for a metal album, to be sure. At any given point the album will remind you of a sludgey Mastodon or Bison BC, built around a relentless procession of big pummeling battle riffs and howling, raspy vocals.

The trouble I had with it was that there is rather a lack of variation, a lack of “moments.” I’ve listened to it nearly ten times now and still the only thing that sticks out for me is the closing 10-minute epic “Day of Rest” for the [nice](http://092.me) hypnotic Neurosis groove it gets going. Otherwise, it’s memorable in the way that being beaten relentlessly for 43 minutes would be: the whole experience itself is memorable, but you’re hard-pressed to recall any specific details. Is it heavy? Hell yeah, but so are a hundred other albums out this year. Moreover, after each listen to Full Of Hell, I felt like I’d just listened to a collection of riffs, rather than a collection of songs.
