I wanted to draw some attention to this album, as it's pretty fantastic, but hasn't created much buzz since releasing earlier this month. It's an atmospheric black metal album crafted in a similar vein to Darkspace, and it's probably the first band I've heard that has created space black metal on a similar level of quality with Darkspace. Expect massive synths and droning guitars, and extended passages that stretch as far as the cosmos lol. There are even some solid "clean" vocals in some of the tracks, as well as several spoken word passages that really fit the atmosphere well.

This is pretty cool! I agree with the comparison to Darkspace, however what really shines through to me is the "grand" theatrics amongst the chaos. It's got a very raw feeling that sounds like it could have been straight out of the early 90s. Love that! Cool concept for an album too.

Thanks for sharing!

This definitely does sound like a less chaotic Darkspace so far, neat. Seems like the guy behind Eintritt is still doing good stuff.

The concept is cool but I'm not a big fan of the clean vocals.

Darkspace weren't this bad, were they? Pretty cheesy stuff. The terrible narration on the first track put me off immediately.

I found the Strigae album from earlier in the year much cooler for this sort of thing.

Using Greek letters like that and having a manifesto is two strikes, which means I'm not going to look for the third, you're out.

Thank you for sharing this. I have yet to fully check out Darkspace, but Paysage d'Hiver (a related project) is one of my fave black metal projects.

Are we sure this isn't a Mesarthim off-shoot?
