Om - Variations On A Theme Album Cover

Variations on a Theme picks up where Jerusalem/Dopesmoker left off with lengthy, sprawling epics that border on drone yet have considerable heft and muscle. Since they're operating without a guitar player, Om's three songs are nothing but a low-end rumble. Hakius and Cisneros work on Variations on a Theme is impressive, especially the drumming. The three songs flow into one another, so don't expect a hodge-podge of riffs and styles. Om work within certain specific constructs, toying with similar arrangements while maintaining a central theme. - Arzgarth/

Om is a duo formed in 2003 by the rhythm section of the disbanded stoner doom metal band Sleep. The band's first three albums feature Al Cisneros on vocals and bass and Chris Hakius on drums. On January 31, 2008 Hakius left the band and was replaced by drummer Emil Amos. Their music is similar in structure to Tibetan chanting. - wikipedia
