Ember Slug a gorgeous album... acoustic guitar was well recorded and sounds fantastic. entrancing and alluring. defs going to be a stand out for 2019, imho. Favorite track: Solus Ipse.

Dave Aftandilian Hypnotic blend of beauty and decay, corruption and transcendence, darkly shimmering. Lovely dryad voices weep as another tree falls and we do not even turn to look; to mourn her loss, and ours. Voice-borne voices scream, elated at our selfish ignorance and greed. We each must choose our path to walk, and Suldusk offers a slender hand with bloody fingertips to guide our path.

Grigou I'm not usually a fan of metal-influenced folk music, especially not with female vocals, as I always feel like this type of music kind of lacks "balls", in a way, no pun or male chauvinism intended. But those Lunar falls really hit my nostalgia spot. Emily Highfield's voice is a comforting sigh, a ghostly hand squeezing your shoulder through the downs of life, when the absence of people is barely enough to stomach their actual existence. Favorite track: Three Rivers.

Track Name: Solus Ipse
Blood Of My Blood
Below Above
Take My Restless Fire

This Fire Runs
Track Name: The Elm
In solitude we walk shrouded in our dreams
Into the mists of night, spirits left unseen
Dear anguish redeem me with your gentle kiss
And lay this sadness into the abyss

I wish I wish but its all in vain
Wish we were free again
To find the place under the elm, where our shadows they still realm

Through the vastness, and on the other side
We leave our masks there, no longer we do hide
Oppose the light and gather, all of our storms
Shoot down the sun, wearing your crown of thorns.
Track Name: Aphasia
Breathless sky dissolving
All for naught your suffering

Wyverns cry
Firelight, glowing,
Hadean eyes,
All knowing

All for naught your suffering

In this black sea of trees shadows rise
Drifting moon see it through
And touch the mist of the morning

Track Name: Three Rivers
By the river I dwell, where the water whispers
Lost lullabies, sighing deep inside
Solstafir, imbibe and drown me
To re-appear, blazing white light ecstasy

Ricochet of stars, you appear before me
Face in my hands, as you weep my name
Time grows short, we are almost there
Beyond all help, as we dance into the void

Come into this night, atone in the eclipse
What does it matter now?
As we fall inside, and watch shadows die
Three Rivers will be our guide.
Track Name: Catacombs
Borne of autumn storms and stars to come so far
Seeking comfort in the dream behind your eyes
Sacrifice stars to die to survive

You are safe now beloved
In the mist now we await
In the rivers of grief we were drowning
By the rich of the dark we will awake

Breathe your air, eye to eye, we lie
Sage and Seers coming home
Drifting back to the catacombs
Track Name: Nazaré
Lay your bones amid the hollows
Melt your marrow on the shore
Carry On, Drown The Sun

Lay your words through solemn forests
Flood your fears through the fog
Carry On, Drown The Sun

These days beneath me, fall like greatest days
Now let me through, this ocean of sorrow
To the Nazaré
Track Name: Drogue (featuring Skyggefigurrer
Fall between the trees, starless
Eternal eidolons drifting dreamless
Are we the undeserved
We are embracing hallowed darkness
Summoning up our storms
We are blackened incarnations
Of the void we know so well
Of the maledictions that befell us
Before we ever came into the light
Bonded by the void we are
Track Name: Sovran Shrines
Through the fog shadow skies
Silence in the rise
The cold came wild silence
This necropolis

Morning Star resplendent
The time has come
Candlekeep, all aflame
Rebirth in the flight

All through the night
Vestige of Light
Will remain

Elegy Luminous
Under starry crowns
These tears serve me not
This ellipsis

Star of Lethe come for me
Purify these embers
Candlekeep all aflame
Amphora of the restless

This knowing it came rolling
Before we could ever speak
Unto a silent sky we watch
The bludgeoning of our dreams
All but light will fall
And last unto the end
Resting on our sovran shrines
Hidden evergreen.
