Following the set-up of their previous album, the band once again employ unique dropped tunings that make for extremely heavy and intense riffs, as displayed on the title track and instrumental tune "The Quill." Tracks like "Find Away," "New Man" and "Love Comes Crushing" are dominated by fuzzy, drone-filled dual guitar work. These songs also bridge the gap between the more powerful songs, including "War Party" and "Sign of Aeth," and the contrasting experimental, spacey tracks like "Homegoings and Transitions" and "Forever Still." Having gained notoriety during their hiatus, Floor cement their welcomed return with Oblation.
