They play Black Metal with a good spread of Post-Metal thrown in, or, Post-Black Metal as it’s otherwise known.
This is Black Metal brimming with atmosphere and awash with colour and texture. A progressive and diverse album, this has a host of captivating passages and sections that transport the listener to another plane of existence.
The Black Metal is piercing and caustic whilst the Post-Metal is haunting and enticing. Mixed together and swathed in atmosphere these songs are the epitome of expansive and epic Black Metal. Cascadia clearly doesn’t have a monopoly on this style of Extreme music.
The emotional resonance and dark moods of these songs should not be underestimated. Each track adds to the mystique of the album; each one a further chapter in the story, a further unfurling of the nightmare. Based on H.P. Lovecraft, how else could it be?
From the soaring heights of iceblasted mountains to the darkest pits of the blackest abyss, this is a journey that will scar forever.
In an age where more and more music is short-lived and another discarded consumable, this album is anything but.
