Excited about this. Hopefully this can live up to the last three releases (2 full lengths one ep) as they were great

Not quite as good as the previous two albums, but a great continuation of October Falls' sound nonetheless. The album wanders a bit too close to the generic side of (atmospheric) black metal, but manages to retain a little bit of the folk in the older releases giving it a fresh feeling. Incredible songwriting, near perfect production (could have been raw-er for my tastes), and outstanding performance all around. Having a hard time deciding whether to give this a very high 8 or a very low 9. One more listen will determine that.

I grabbed this album by mistake when trying to buy October Tide's newest. However, this album blew me the fuck away. Holy shit, this is fantastic.

Very good album. Quite different from the first two albums I'd say.

So, a small update before the year ends:

The new album is fully recorded and is currently being mixed and mastered by H.Sorvali at Trollhouse Audio.

In the end, S.Hinkka couldn't participate for the recordings of the album, but H.Sorvali handled the bass guitars instead.

More info later.
