After being initially unsure of this, it suddenly clicked in my brain and I finally realised what a brilliant piece of work it is. Cerebral and progressive doom metal that isn't just a relentless journey through misery, but a sometimes melancholy, sometimes uplifting experience. The vocals were part of the reason for my initial reticence, but I soon realised were actually one of it's strengths, the clean vocal style allowing the music to dictate the emotional atmosphere. An unexpected triumph!
Favorite track: When a dark age comes, hold the light inside.
