Taking inspiration from bands like Latitudes, The Ocean, Cult of Luna, Cloudkicker, Celeste, Ulcerate, and Cranial, Laden's third album The Visitation, guides listeners on a post-metal journey with elements of black, prog, and sludge metal.

The atmosphere of the album is influenced from the book Roadside Picnic by Arkady Strugatsky and Boris Strugatsky, and continues the sci-fi spirit of the first album We Searched For New Worlds, while growing musically from the second album Restless Apparition.

"Seattle’s Laden captures the storm and stress of the greatest, grimmest post-metal, crafting songs from 20-megaton riffs." -J. Edward Keyes Bandcamp
