The overall feel and rhythm of the music is sort of a vacant, zombielike shuffle towards nowhere. There are riffs, but no real 'riffing': the chords aren't played with particular conviction. It's like hands are sliding over fretboard incidentally more than with any sense of purpose, and the picking hand just sort of glides over the strings in an empty fashion.

Even the vocals sound sort of loose and strained, like every word is the last after a long session of hoarse screaming at nothing in particular. The tempo is exclusively midpaced or slow: there's no blasting, no double bass, and essentially no tremolo picking. The songs are all dirges of one sort or another, crawling along until some arbitrary amount of playing time is achieved and everything just gets abandoned. It's the epitome of a band not really giving a fuck at all; they're just playing the music because they have nothing better to do.

It's this or sit in the dark for hours at a time, unable to get to sleep. There's a listlessness and emptiness to the compositions which is hard to describe. It's the music of people who are waiting for something that will never come.

It's music all about insomnia and an inability to find a purpose, so you just go through the next day, and the one after that, and yet more after that in hopes of finding something better that will never come. You can't even describe it as tortured: it's too apathetic to manage that. It's more sullen and tired and beaten down by the dullness of everyday life than any real emotion.

Each song is just another day of vague, grey skies, unfulfilling meals, and a lack of interaction with the people around you. When it comes to the music, this is nothing special. All the specialness is retained in atmosphere and sound more than any high-minded composition.
