    Heard the first album when the guy was called Arsaidh. I've got this sitting around in CD form somewhere but haven't heard it yet.

    It's certainly isn't awful, but I tend to think that it tries to be soaring and pretty and feelsy basically ALL THE TIME and it wears on you after a while. Good for whenever I'm driving south for a surf but there's far better forest-y black metal out there.

    Probably the best UKBM band at the moment. Roots was great but Aura was immense. The new one is still settling in but initial impressions are good.

    I checked it out and enjoyed my first listen. I really like how they blend the folk instrumentation :yesway:
