02:46 - Fearmeister is death metal+ a new genre or something?
02:44 - !J.O.O.E.! I'm holding out for that Embrional record. Think it's defo gonna be a death metal+ record.
02:11 - Apothecary I do still probably prefer Emptiness, but it's nonetheless a great album in my book. Surprisingly groovy too. But you're probably right, I don't see anything touching the particular atmosphere of NBTW for a while

Neige strikes again. Yes, the bloke from Alcest who apparently believes it's his sworn duty to make sure as many bands possible are working together towards achieving his vision (a perfect shoegaze/post-rock black metal album perchance?), is here too, but only handling the vocal duties and not contributing to the songwriting itself. If you expected Écailles De Lune number 2, you might be slightly disappointed.
The relaxing sections, Niege's vocals and the songwriting of this release is in my opinion what makes it worthwhile. It is such a shame that the album is over so quickly which left me in a bittersweet state, yearning for more.
