So those crazy Mayans decided this was the year that everything went to H-E-double-hockey-sticks in a hand basket… well everyone's favorite band of merry Finns (move the fuck on over, Korpiklaani), Profetus done recorded the soundtrack to the miserable end of all things.

…To Open The Passages In Dusk is four songs and nearly one hour of unrelenting bleak misery.

09.02.2012 Happy Happy Joy Joy... err, wait, Misery Misery Woe Woe. Profetus, the embodiment of all things toasterbath are back with another four song affair so bleak it will make those Sarah McLachlan SPCA ads seem like a trip to Disneyland after gobbling half a bottle of your mom's happy pills by comparison. Bon appetit!

  If "toasterbath" isn't recognized by a dictionary soon, I might lose faith in the English language.

Rating: 9 Great album. Even better than the debut.
Felipe from Procession guests on 'Burn, Lanterns Of Eve' where he does the chanting/clean vocals part.

Rating: 8 For some reason i find this to be classy. Classy funeral doom makes me happy....

Rating: 9 First listen ... it was an 8. Multiple listens ... its a 9. Damn this is a good album. It's like an onion, it has layers that need to be peeled.

Rating: 9 I haven't been moved like this by a funeral doom album since a while, I honestly wasn't expecting it to be this good.

  I did not expect to enjoy this album when I checked it out, but I was surprised to find that I actually quite enjoyed it. I find it hard to stop going back to it!
