Rated 3.71/5 (74.29%) (7 Votes)
This is a slow, moody album of slightly blackened Doom/Death from the diverse Van roster. I was expecting something more in the vein of Agalloch, but this is nowhere near that melodic, and presents a much more bleak and unforgiving soundscape. This is so slow and atmospheric that at times it verges into Funeral Doom country, though not reaching the extreme levels of something like Thergothon. This has some good melodies buried in it, but there's not enough shade and build to the songs for them to be really gripping, and a lot of this seems just long for the sake of it. If you favor the harsher, darker end of the Doom/Death pool, then this might appeal.
