Superb songwriting, faultless musicianship and excellent production make this album essential listening in the funeral doom canon, like a kind of funeral Blackwater Park. Managing at the same time to be both ethereally haunting and oppressively heavy, they strike a perfect balance, succeeding where so many fail. The album feels like a solitary, moonlit walk through long-abandoned, ancient ruins. Epic, without being overblown, this is a masterpiece.

I love this album too. It has such a distinct sound and atmosphere that I keep going back to above other Evoken releases.

Welcome to Metal Academy by the way! I'm really enjoying your input so far.
