Well of the Disquieted is a conceptualized tragedy centered around mental illness where each song brings forth a variation and an aspect of the disease displayed on songs like La ballade des gens heureux, based on the life of Virginia Woolf. The artwork created by Travis Smith (Opeth, Katatonia, Anathema and more) captures perfectly the struggle that people afflicted with mental illness must face.
Showcasing an amazing array of guests including extreme metal legend Luc Lemay (Gorguts), the band is offering an album chock full of massive, punishing soundscapes that clocks in at 77 minutes. Metal Sucks deemed Well of the Disquieted worthy enough to be included in the 2018 edition of Albums That Will Fuck Your Face Off.
