Pretty sick Black Metal with a bit of a unique vibe. Trippy usage of major and/or "upbeat" passages with occasional tastefully applied pedal effects. I didn't think I'd like it as much as I do. There are the fairly typical Black Metal riffs throughout, but their usage of strange melodic lines and atmosphere is really unique, I think. The atmosphere is almost spacey and celestial at times, without delving into full on psychedelia.

Their EP is also free on Bandcamp.

Vocals are weak and the riffs are ho-hum. Leads are pretty damn fun though. Different drum production couldn't hurt and give me some riffs that are befitting of them leads and I'll be happy. Not a waste of time for my ears just to sample the melodies once or twice.

The songs definitely seem to go somewhere at the very least. Enjoyed Ancient Black Flame throughout and it reached a fine conclusion. And hey, a riff at the end! Hah.

Bass is doing fine stuff as well.

I like the vocals just fine, personally. It definitely is a bit rough, but it tickles my fancy throughout.
