Staff review by

Wisconsin, one of the colder parts of the northern United States, has produced an equally frosty and frigid album by young band Arbor. What's not to love? We have doom/black/prog metal with heavy folk leanings yet plenty of melody; screamed, growled, and clean vocals; intense drumming featuring some cold, crisp cymbal work; nice variety in tempos; all topped off with plenty of passion.

Anyway, a really good, and versitile album, kinda prog folk doom.

I really like the drum and guitar work.
