HistoryBeginning with a sound from Death metal on their first recording, Skepticism developed quickly its own sound, a combination of Doom slow metal and death metal with a great use of keyboards, in particular of the organ. This style was represented for the first time on their demonstration Aeothe Kaear in 1994, which, although slow, was increasingly faster than their following albums. Their first album, Stormcrowfleet , pushed a little further this style, while making up of six one intermediate duration long and slow tracks of approximately ten minutes.
After that, the group left a “pair”: a EP and an album connected to the level of the topic. A little bit less obscure in its, but more abstract in the words, Ethere and Lead and Aether are perhaps the most known albums of Skepticism, in particular for the track “The March and the Stream”, which appears in various versions on the two discs, and which is considered by certain as one of the songs of Doom most depressing metal which was ever recorded.
In 1999, Aes had left, a EP of only one track of almost twenty-eight minutes, and a challenge on the level of the style for the group. A large variety of musical topics is explored in this album before the song is not even turned over on it and returns where it had started.
The last two albums of the group belong to the second “pair”, The Process off Farmakon , in 2002, then Farmakon , in 2003. These albums illustrate a small evolution compared to the preceding style, by introducing elements of dissonance and experimentation.
