With only three songs and playtime of over fourteen minutes, while taking the doom metal to the next level, once hearing the first note of track one, this band are like the Pipe piper of doom metal, you're led like the blind and dammed of (not just) but the spirit & soul of excellent clean-sharp epic-heavy metal music, -Esque Epic doom of Candlemass and Black Sabbath's music while embracing the depressive mood, darker atmospheres & melancholia tone of Finnish doom metal with some elements of the seventies hard rock and stoner rock

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork shows us three ladies, a Griffin (bottom) and an eagle/Griffin's head? Could these be Sirens? Due to folklore stories, Sirens lead sailors by blinding them, with their singing & blinding beauty to their doom, in John Milton, in Paradise Lost II, "refers to the legend of the Griffin in describing Satan". There say Satan can lead us to temptation, war and other evil deeds!
