A melodic black metal album without any unnecessary synthesizers and shit like that from the canadian band Noire. The album is heavily influenced by Dissection with the melodic and cold guitar riffs that feels like the reapers scythe are wielded at you. Ad that together with some acoustic guitars and there you have it. The lyrics are the "standard" black metal texts, nothing that really stands out. But in this case, how the fuck cares?! The music is so bloody fucking good it doesn't matter, and the production is perfect for purpose. Maybe nothing new here, but anyways a surprisingly good release.
Best track: Shadows Rise
