20:21 - God Buster 鬼 Just realized top male porn stars earn 10 times more than top male models. I overlooked this profession at my young age, I wish I could rewrite "My Ambition"
20:06 - Apothecary I agree, there's some good BM coming out at the moment too, but yeah, "Finland" and "quality doom" are pretty synonymous right now
20:01 - Zaphod The most interesting side of Finnish metal right now is probably the doomy side of things anyway.
19:59 - Apothecary In a way you are right, Fear, but the Finns just seem to have a particular inclination towards that more so than some others... I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I hope my list will illustrate that trend, mostly in BM and doom

Neige strikes again. Yes, the bloke from Alcest who apparently believes it's his sworn duty to make sure as many bands possible are working together towards achieving his vision (a perfect shoegaze/post-rock black metal album perchance?), is here too, but only handling the vocal duties and not contributing to the songwriting itself. If you expected Écailles De Lune number 2, you might be slightly disappointed.
The relaxing sections, Niege's vocals and the songwriting of this release is in my opinion what makes it worthwhile. It is such a shame that the album is over so quickly which left me in a bittersweet state, yearning for more.
