Demoralizing Atmospheric Doom Metal. Do not expect YOB or Electric Wizzard, this is more on the Mournful Congregation, Shape of Despair, My Dying Bride side of Doom. Hailing from Norway, three band members totally own this 3-track 49 minute opus. Filled with bleak melancholic passages nicely mixing heavy guitars, sweet female vocals and excellent string instruments. Not your average 'heavy' Metal release.
1. (16:25) Pure depressive goodness! Mournful female vocals and excellent piano sections. (4.5 out of 5)
2. (6:37) Almost as depressive as Elbereth, but with a more elaborate musical background. (4.5 out of 5)
3. (26:05) Quintessential Doom riffs open this behemoth of a track. Weeping guitars lead the way to immersive atmospheric elements. Truly one of the best tracks this genre has seen in years. (5 out of 5).
