Lamentations of the Ashen - Libertine Cyst (2015)
Over an hour of brilliant doom / black metal that has a very progressive feel to it. The integration of the doom and black aspects of the tracks works very well and is the product of a band that appear to understand both genres instinctively. The production isn't the best, but adds to the atmosphere of the music, and particularly the vocals, with their almost whispered blackened delivery, sounding like a disembodied voice beseeching the listener from the beyond. As a lover of both doom and black metal, this album is like a gift from the Outer Reaches.
