This album takes me to the darkest places. The whole vibe and overall feel of the album is that of absolute dread, but also beauty. The overall mix of death metal, black metal and some jazz is perfect and sound is unique and fresh. Waiting in anticipation of album 2! surgicalsteel
A grand, raw and brilliantly executed piece of blackened folk metal. The acoustic and metal passages flow together seamlessly. A must own for every Canadian - or a must own for anyone who loves damn good music. iamtherevenant
