From the guitar riffs drowning in gloom, to the mixture of somber beauty and ominous power of the male and female vocals, Weeping Silence deliver an album full of poetic pain and mourning for happiness, the individual, and the Earth itself. They pay homage to the withering effects of time, and offer the listener an "icy throne in winter's embrace" to sit in as they stand beside you, as we all watch the sun set one last time.

Not a style I venture into regularly but of the bands I've heard doing this kind of thing, probably one of the stronger efforts I've heard - good singer, nice piano, and all that jazz

It sounds greater than it has a right to. Definitely their best album.
