Description from their Bandcamp site:

"Their songs are rooted in a cold and depressive aesthetic expression, with a lyrical universe revolving around the dark corners of the human mind. Riddled with powerful highs and enigmatic, melodious and haunting lows, the music uniquely captures the essence of the modern post-black/post metal genre."

Danish metal is seldom this brilliant. Absolutely love it!
For those who like this, you should check out Ajuna. They sound very similar to Redwood Hill.

I very nearly rated this a 9. Pretty good shit.

In a kind of way, this makes me think what Cobalt would sound like if they fully embraced their "post" side. Well, maybe a bit anyway. Great sound.

Indeed great debut this. Quite harsh at times, due to the vocals.

I would say this is how Tombs would sound if they are more blackened than now. Great stuff indeed.

Like its successor, a solid album, but with one song that really stood out to me - in this case, Poseidon
