Additional info
Composed to be played as a live soundtrack on Carl Dreyer's Vampyr, this long musical piece was finally recorded in February 2012. The result is not a new YONL album but a long new track (72 minutes) with YONL classic heavy riffs mixed with more experimental and drone tunes that can remind us their collaborative records with Nadja or ThisQuietArmy.

"Vampyr is a 1932 French-German horror film directed by Danish director Carl Theodor Dreyer. The film was written by Dreyer and Christen Jul based on elements from J. Sheridan Le Fanu's collection of supernatural stories In a Glass Darkly. Vampyr was funded by Nicolas de Gunzburg who starred in the film under the name of Julian West among a mostly non-professional cast. Gunzburg plays the role of Allan Grey, a student of the occult who enters the village of Courtempierre, which is under the curse of a vampire."

<"Your mum" joke goes here.>
Demetrius: Villain, what hast thou done?
Aaron: That which thou canst not undo.
Chiron: Thou hast undone our mother.
Aaron: Villain, I have done thy mother.
- William Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus: Act 4, Scene 2 (1593)

First impression is not really favorable. Too light and uninteresting.
