Nautic Doom Metal
"AHAB offer up their own unique brand of doom metal. The typical BLACK SABBATH, CANDLEMASS and SOLITUDE AETURNUS comparisons used when describing the genre do not apply on The Divinity Of Oceans - nor have they ever where AHAB is concerned - as the album sets a brooding juggernaut pace that makes a much stronger impact than one might expect. Each song is an epic unto itself, the music is bombastic in spite of what being doom metal is supposedly all about, and Droste's vocals have taken the band in a direction no one would have expected upon diving into The Call Of The Wretched Sea. Calling doom metal "unpredictable" is a stretch at the best of times, but the term certainly applies on The Divinity Of Oceans..."
"... AHAB have effectively thrown out all preconceived notions of what doom metal - funeral doom, death doom, take your pick - is supposed to be. Their Nautik Doom foundation is completely intact, but it has been injected with elements of EARTH ('Time's Like Molten Lead', 'Further South'), hints at classic BLACK SABBATH ('Antarctica The Polymorphess'), going so far as to channel ALICE IN CHAINS ('The Giant') thanks to Larsen and Droste's own clean voice
