Pure beauty, atmosphere and emotion... You're doomed... An inescapable limbo as wave after wave of sheer, overwhelming passion strikes you with such force that your mind can't even begin to comprehend what is occurring. An overload of emotion, engulfing your heart in pain and despair before letting go and swallowing it up once again; this is what To Lay Like Old Ashes is all about.

The few enjoyable moments in a couple of songs, the weak-ass vocals and the fucking unnecesary outro makes this album one of the most overrated DSBM albums out there. Why the fuck is this mediocre album regarded as a classic of the genre?

Don't know, maybe people have different tastes to you? Why the fuck do 20,0000 like ed sheran

Don't even know if it is regarded as a classic its just what some people who like it might say.

I myself really like this album and think the vocals are great, actually really amped to be having this album turn up in the mail soon.… do agree coma is a bit shit, but it can be ok when in a sleepy trance.

Sorrow and black metal melted together in a unique great way. Howls are very emotional and a great addition from my point of view. Tracks 2,3 and 4 are the album's spine. Woods of Desolation is not an experiment, it is Austere's mature sequel.

I can totally see why everyone raves about this, it's captivating. Gripped me from the moment the vocals in track 3 started to the last minute of Coma II.
