I am genuinely having a hard time believing this is a one-man band.

Quite digging this track that's up already. I really enjoy this guy and what he does with this project but for a while now I've kinda been wanting him to push it in a new direction, as all the releases sound kinda samey after a while. This though sounds more melodic than ever so if the rest of the album follows suit that will be a welcome change.

Got the promo a few days ago and yeah, this is exactly what I was looking for. Definite shift in gears into more midpaced and melodic territory. There's even piano on a track or two. This was just what this guy needed to do, he makes great music but needed to change things up a bit with this project's sound. Bravo.

I'm halfway on my first listen and I am blown away. The violin, the piano, the melodies, the atmosphere
I don't remember his previous albums being like this.

And the artwork is again fantastic.

I have to say, I wasn't enjoying this early on, but it really comes into its own later on - given how put off I was by the first couple of tracks, I was surprised how into it I found myself during 6th Passage

This has everything that I like about Black Metal; darkness, rawness, and melody. Some albums hit the mark on one or two of these defining characteristics and I thoroughly enjoy them. However, this album hits the mark on all three and is perfectly composed through my ears.

The variety of sounds on this album is what really does it for me. Possibly the most eclectic black metal release I've ever heard. Possibly.

Black metal violin > black metal saxophone

Addendum: By far my favorite album this year, I changed my score to a 10 and I haven't given one since 2017. Each track on this album is unique unlike much BM, the instrumentation is eclectic, the atmosphere is perfectly evil, it changes up constantly and doesn't get boring like most BM, and imo there are no filler tracks. I think what I find most perfect about this album is it bridges the divide in black metal between all of the subgenres; it's atmospheric, it's depressing, it's aggressive, it's dissonant, and it's even melodic......

This is incredibly unique and interesting. I gotta say, I love the "violin riffage" on several of the songs
