3.5 greatBritch2tiger | February 21st 16

Now this album has the (beginning) industrial folk I was looking for. Starts of pretty folksy at the very beginning, which then slowly drifts into gothic-esque folk. Once this album gets to the end, the final two tracks feel more like passages accompanied by music rather than actual songs. Still enjoyable nonetheless. A similar album w/ more consistency regarding folk but has less industrial influences is The Tea Party's Splendor Soils album (my personal favorite of the two stated here).


5.0 classicPenguinniNiGuenippi | June 21st 14

Before the trilogy (with a trilogy within the trilogy) of their three most respected and
well-liked albums, Current 93 released this to start their full movement into neofolk.
Although i would still consider this a transitional album, this is their first travel into
(their type of)folk. Swastikas, the album before this, still had a good deal of the
"industrial" music that they started with it. This album, excluding the last bonus track
(which shouldn't be included), is the first album to be without any industrial music. This
is heavily underrated within the Current 93 discography, and in general, i find it to be
their fourth best work after the TPM, Of Ruine and Inmost Light trilogy trilogy.
