𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Ritualistic rhythms, & dark cold melodies, that is repetitive frostbitten & cold, with additional instrumentation piano/keyboard sections, with melodious sorrow

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: A combination of ancient chants & whispers with low screaming/shrieking vocals

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Clean slow tempos & drum beats, blast-beats that are banished the background

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: The intro track ‘Depart Pt. I’ as this unwelcoming cold strumming of an acoustic, with the wind howling around thee, and all light/happy thoughts in your mind turn to darkness & despair… For the rest of the album, are the remaining three songs, that themselves are composed of despair, death, grim and frostbitten in darkness & melancholic. While the composition in the album, is (how I was taking in by the sheer) beautifully breathtaking music, with elements of (kind of dark Gothic) orchestra (instrumental) parts, chanting vocals, fast to slow (vice versa) moments


*** The band texts talk about the struggles of pre-modernity and the failures of the simple life our ancestors lived.***


*dark & fascinating*

* glorious gothic style of orchestra blackened doom* *melodious elements*

*experimental haunting horror with deep sadness*

melodious painting of blackened doom

with a dark melancholic/romantic

transcendent of beauty


𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork is from the Edwardian time, painted by an English painter 'Thomas Edwin Mostyn'

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: For me, is how well this album is composed and written (in the music, and the lyrics) beyond all that of darkness of black/doom, you can make something that is dark and evil into a gorgeous melodious masterpiece!

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none !!!
