Holy crap... I like this. Just a couple minutes into the first song and I think I think this is pretty damned good Very Happy

The clean singing chanting church vocals are stellar (sells this immediately to me actually, fucking awesome), the black metal scream is not bad either, although it has the most uncanny similarity to it I cannot quite pinpoint... maybe a local band I know perhaps.

Nice release format too, checking out the photo's right now. This looks classy.

25% off today at witching hour store. Fair postage rates. I think it's cheaper to buy from them.

Sounds cool. That wooden box looks great but it's a bit steep for me. I'll wait for a CD or regular LP version.

This is pretty interesting stuff. Black metal needs more liturgical chanting.

The black metal vox could have been EPIC if they had the diversity of the clean vocals, say someone like Arioch or M of the Devil doing them.

Those clean chants and singing sections make this album... but had the black metal vox been a little more dynamic this could instantly have went to the top of the release list for 2015 for me immediately.

I agree with that. Also, my personal tastes tend to veer more toward a more natural sounding production than this but I think the music is good enough to overlook the, in my view, slightly sterile production.

Order made regardless. ...well especially with that discount, it would be foolish not to.
The chanting vocals on this album are fucking stellar. I cannot stop listening to this, I exceeded my bandcamp ability but someone put these songs on youtube as well. This really is top notch.

The production is great as far as I am concerned. If it were a little different no big deal, but as is... this is quite a great find or release to discover here.

The black metal vocals definitely hold the album back. Very processed and one dimensional. If they had a better vocalist this could have been one of my favorite albums of the year. As it is it's still very cool, but it's disappointing that it has such a flaw.
