'Radiance of a Thousand Suns' is monstrous and punishing. Whalesong attacks with heaviness, slow industrial rhythms, hypnotic arrangements and overwhelming, sometimes more than 10-minutes long compositions. Constantly repeated riffs and rhythms mixed with huge loudness don't let anyone ignore them. Whalesong understands the great value of dynamics and uses huge variety of instruments: gongs, hammered dulcimer, tubular bells, theremin, vibraphone and also objects like sheet metal and springs.
Since the very beginning the band has always been highly influenced by genres like industrial, no wave and drone. Over time they created their unique uncompromising style consisted of sludge, doom metal, jazz, noise rock and post punk. Notwithstanding this, Whalesong music can't be easily described with just one genre, but one thing's for sure: the band doesn't follow any trends and negates up-to-date fragmentary listening of music.
