"All is lost but hope" were the last words sang by Rowan London on Virgin Black's sophomore album, released back in 2003. 15 years later, with a decade long hiatus, and the Requiem series finally completedů These words remain as truthful as ever.

I have waited so long for this. I'm absolutely stoked, and the little bit that I've heard on the bandcamp page is top notch.

Finally!!! Absolutely love it, can't stop listening. I kinda envy the new fans that will listen to the whole Requiem for the first time as it was intended.

Yeah, one is meant to listen from Pianissimo, then Mezzo Forte and finally Fortissimo. Although the "Heavy to calm" approach is also quite interesting in itself.

All three were written and recorded at the same time. The band planned to release all of them at once but the label decided that was not a good commercial move and so they started releasing them separately. The order in which they were released probably also was more commercially planned rather than artistically.

Got my CD copy today. Will need to set aside 3 hours on the weekend to finally listen to all 3 together.
Was expecting there to be more piano, to be honest. London only sings on this.

I am aware of what the term means. The reason I commented on the piano was because it was used rarely (probably just once or twice tops) and I really enjoyed it and wondered why they didn't use it more considering some of the compositions being kind of... eh.
