It has metal vibes, but its typical such bands starts whit heavy and good metal tunes, later softer, softer some gaze sounds and simmilar. She looks good, good to listen, not bad music, but listened at work whit rush
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

Really nice sound, with a good balance of blackgaze moments of intensity with a general ethereal aura

I simply get lost in awe when listening to this, it's beautiful music, so tranquil, and she is a stunning vocalist, one of the best female vocalists in metal right now. I'm not usually into shoe gazing but this is a special album.

The problem I have with the whole shoegaze thing is that, for some reason, it seems to have a very narrow scope and tends to become a bit predictable or unninovative. Here I like what I´m listening but I get out pretty soon because of the inability to surprise.

However this is a beautiful album and Kathrine has an amazing voice. Good job.

Glorious drum performance
A lot of times, listening to blackened death metal is a lot like waking up after a night of heavy drinking: you know you had a decent time, but you can’t remember much of it. - Mark Z.
