Staff review by
There's certainly no "loss of beauty" on this record, let me tell you that. An early contender for extreme doom AOTY? You can bet on your life, it is.

Pretty damn great. Reminds me a blend of Dawn Of Solace, The Prophecy, Novembers Doom, and a bit of Iotunn.

A Nice Guy
Excellent release, getting some strong Saturnus vibes mixed with early Katatonia. These guys have got it spot on here, great vocals (both harsh and clean), great bittersweet melancholic sound and some very impressive songwriting, and there's some stunning tracks on here my favorite being "Nature In Disguise".

Nice melancholic sound. Both growls and clean vocals are solid. No standout songs though.

Great album, this will for sure be one of my favorites of the year. A Nature in Disguise and Underwater Oddity are my favorites, excellent songs.

What an album....i loved 'the last flower' but it reminds me of 'Abhorrent Rays'.....not sure.... But there are other so many catchy tracks. One of the finer alvumsc listened in recent times.
In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘

The problem with having 13 songs in an album is that there will be some hits and misses, eventhough it was a case of more hits than misses for me. The best bit of this album is it's songwriting. Some of the best clean vocals and melancholic guitar work mixed with appropriate growls.
Leeches everywhere.

I don't know why this album just didn't work for me. Listening to it I didn't feel anything.
