Very nice album, thanks for the review, I've noticed it a couple of times looking for new stuff on bandcamp, but the cute jellyfish on the cover do not exactly give a "mires of tragedy" association, so I'd have probably missed this altogether=)))

I like some parts, I dislike some others. I paid for the download and I don't know if I did right...

I have mixed feelings about Valborg too... I only have the previous one, but it was very patchy... some stuff was great, some other a bit meh...

I did not know about this band before, so I quickly browsed their previous albums and they all seem bloody awful. So I'm pretty glad they mellowed their sound now, the only thing i really dislike are the "brutal" black metal-like vocals which sound artificial, forced and just plain bad.

I'm only familiar with their album "Nekrodepression" which had nothing to do with Doom whatsoever, but was a fun album to listen to that doesn't take itself too seriously...

I finally had the chance to listen to it on bandcamp... doomy dark metal to me... first half is very good, but patchy second half... which ruined it for me. All in all is ok... a bit like I remembered the previous opus.
