I couldn’t exactly pick out a specific standout track because everything is most excellent. I enjoyed the transition on the first song from spooky to devastating. I thought the leads were all great and several songs features great riffs with an overall feel of primal intensity. Between the lower tempo, the deep rich low-end focus, and the frantic shouts there’s a grandiose feel to the sound. It’s like a tidal wave about to crash down.
Guitars are earripping phantasms from the nether planes of the earth. On top of this, small melodies floats on top, giving a fantastic mood and surplus. […] The song kind of changes mood from the darkness in the beginning to a beautiful uplifting ending, filled with ethereal sounds on top, almost sounding a bit like some of M83’s bright moments. […] Black Sails For Red Seas is a new star in the universe of blackgaze.
I really have become completely captivated by [“Hunters Moon“] — though the entire album is damned captivating. It’s a powerfully haunting track right from the start, but the spectral emanations in the music are balanced by staggering heaviness.
