I find myself liking bits and pieces of this album, but at times it gets a bit repetitive,
specifically in the drum department. Vocals are bit boring after a while too. Still, I'm giving it a
third listen right now hoping it will all make sense.

Its about as repetitive as your standard black metal album but its the woodwinds that make this album unique

The drums kinda sound like crap, but the rest is good.

I like the newer mix. Those strings omgggg m/

Few notes, though: I think the beginning breakdown is kinda weird. A bit off-putting to hear one of
those in an atmospheric post-black celtic folk-metal band.
Also when the strings come on in full force halfway into the song it's sooo great, but then they
build to a climax and then awkwardly and abruptly transition back into black metal and it's weird.
They coulda continued the strings with the electric guitars and made an epic bm section, or at least
used the guitars to emulate some similar melodies as the strings, instead of making that next
section sound so different and disjointed.
Rest of the song is top-notch, but that one awkward transition bothers me.

Edit: Oh yeah, those clean vocals are kinda awkward, too. They don't feel quite right with those
faster riffs. It's like they're straining, trying to keep up. And they come on so abruptly and are
so low in the mix that they sound even odder. Not a smooth introduction by any means, but not
terrible. Especially when the song gets way better later on.

From the two available tracks, it's looking to be AOTY material
