Additional info
Conceptually "Transcendence"is on the threshold of the Epoch of the Six Sun. The main aim of the work is contemplation of transcendental and exorbitant forms of being against the background of conventionality and immanent degradation of modern civilization.

Staff review by


Raventale plays atmospheric black metal with doom influences and, on paper, these ideas seem like a sure thing for a great album. It's driving yet mournful and there are moments of sadly beautiful guitar melodies, pained vocals, and some keyboards. It's moderately enjoyable and dense but once the album stops spinning I have no desire to play it again and little recollection of what I just heard. Why is this?
