StS have always been one of those bands where it's 3/4 good songs scattered across a mediocre album.

I still check every new release because those 3/4 songs are usually really good and worth a few listens.

Fingers crossed they go with a darker trend like they did in the 3rd part of Songs from the North. I found that to be a more interesting approach by them.

That cover gives me a huge Hollow Knight feel. And yeah I agree with Somar, they always tend to have great songs along some really forgettable ones, so their albums are not that strong as a whole. Nevertheless, I will check this out, love the art work.

Yeah, and on December 21, they will release a standalone 14-minute single track called "Lumina Aurea" featuring Wardruna's Einar Selvik and The Foreshadowing's Marco I. Benevento.

Really looking forward to this. I thought Songs from the North was fantastic, so I've high hopes for this.
