The Vision Bleak holds true as a title for this duo, who tell such Weird Tales of sorrowful blackened gothic misery.

Okay, this one needed a couple of spins. But now I really enjoy the album, and love the way the album is orchestrated as one long song. Top notch goth metal with everything I love about the genre, yet nothing groundbreaking.
Maybe I will enjoy it even more after a couple of more listens

Good always good Ulf Theodor Schwadorf and his other bands always somehow good inspired and inspiration there. Gothic softer vibes mix whit heavier vibes. I enjoy this one.

"An unexpected hit of the year. Ground breaking in the ""goth"" subgenre, weaving between nostalgic,
analog sounding atmospheres to in your face, modern death metal tones. Worth a listen for any fan
of extreme music."

Very weird. Almost every song starts with a long intro? and they all kinda sound the same. I dunno.. maybe after a few more listens it'll click.

Unexpected? Only if you didn't know their work before Otherwise completely agree!
