You know that Lascaille's Shroud is a great band because I'm not pissed off that I had to sit through over two hours of album just to hear The Roads Leading North a single time.

If I really have to tell you why I'm Staff Picking this album, then you just... you're just... fuck, you people have no excuse for not checking this project out after I've been peddling it for 3+ years. All his albums (save for the new one cuz it's not released yet) are on Bandcamp for Name Your Price. Get on it.

Got me an advanced digital copy from Brett yesterday. Listened to it twice last night after work, and it is so fucking glorious!

Are there any synthwave influences? If not, I'll probably pass.

There's some, but it's not a large part of the sound.

Listened just once... Needs more spins no doubt. But it is enough to say that it is awesome. Every damn song is incredible, amazing. Dude, only that 'monster' called When Sleep Takes Us is worth buying the cd. I just ordered it!

I hope we reach the 200USD top because I want this cd! phisically!

The track list here doesn't match the track list on the official YouTube stream. Don't know what the deal is there but this was a pretty fun album.

Yea, I asked Brett about that, he said they are some extra tracks he was on the fence about, but decided to include last minute. But then I got sidetracked by real life and completely forgot to ask if "Endurung Fugue" will be on disc 1 or 2. I imagine it will end up as track 1 on disc 2, but I don't like making assumptions. So, thanks for reminding me I need to ask about that.

Haven't listened to any of the music yet, but that cover art has me entranced.

Patrick has that vibe in his voice that sends shivers down your spine. It's like Midnight (Crimson Glory) is alive. Very similar. Inspiring... Love it!

Good album, with some great moments and ideas BUT too many songs, too many things to get. I'm at three listenings and I don't really know which songs I prefer (maybe When Sleep Takes Us and Compass). I know there's good moments, but where ? I don't remember, there's 2 hours on this release and even if I founded it good, I'm not sure I want to dig that much! I'll try again one or two times but I will probably not rape the repeat mode

This will definitely be in the rotation for quite some time - I leave early for work just so I can sit in the parking lot longer to get my mind right listening to this release. Bravo!

I actually really enjoyed this one. It's not a style I am into at all, but this one felt really unique with it's songwriting.
