SO HIDEOUS, MY LOVE…
I really like this record, it’s got a great sound with its lush strings and horrific screams over a post-punk/black metal freak out….it’s only been available on vinyl, so now all you still stuck on Digital can now experience this record:

“The black metal flows seamlessly along the string instruments who carry timeless melodies. Amidst that fury is intense screaming and vocal attacks that speak through layers of darkness and emotion.” — Blow The Scene
“…this album kicks ass, and deserves all the attention its been getting for its individuality.” — Alternative Matter
“…when looking at an album with this much personal impact all I can really do is share my experience and hope you take the time to listen to this masterpiece and go on your own journey of fantasy and nightmare.” — We Love Metal
“This band is honestly pretty damn good. For a while I wouldn’t come near them because the name makes them sound like something that I just wouldn’t be into. Far from it, this is truly magical music.” — American Aftermath
“a unique blend of blackened hardcore with a touch of post-rock and classical flair, which makes for some truly cathartic music. Emotion pours out of every note as furious tremolo picking and string instruments paint somber bursts of melody under throaty and passionate screams and blasts. The band’s latest EP To Clasp A Fallen Wish With Broken Fingers is my personal introduction to the group, and it’s quite the first impression.” — Heavy Blog Is Heavy
