* GenreShift: Gradually shifted from very heavy DoomMetal with harsh vocals to a somewhat more upbeat, PsychedelicRock-influenced Stoner Metal style.
* HarshVocals: In their earliest work only.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Some of ''Forest Of Equilibrium'' gets up to a 9. Most of the rest of their work is in the 7-8 range though, with the odd drop down a 6. They've also got a few tunes such as "The Caravan" that drop down a 1-2.
* NewSoundAlbum: ''The Ethereal Mirror'' is the first sign of more Stoner-influenced sound, with slightly faster tempos and cleaner vocals. ''Endtyme'' returned them to more straightforward DoomMetal territory, albeit with cleaner vocals. Later albums fall somewhere between the two extremes.

* {{Feelies}} - The digipack CD of Garden of Unearthly Delights is scratch-and-sniff. The idea is that the disk warms up while playing and emits the smell of apples.
