3.5 greatTheSpirit CONTRIBUTOR | January 21st 12

A release between two bands that are arguably some of the better groups from the shoegazing black metal pool, The Path Towards Forgetfulness has some pretty glaring errors but overall is an extremely enjoyable listen. Although they have received much more attention, Shyy is easily the weaker band here, creating two decent songs that have more in common with straightforward indie but definitely get their vocal style from shoegaze. ... on the other hand (yes, the name of the band is "...") create three completely entrancing pieces which if honestly had been by themselves would have made for an excellent demo/EP. The songs transition beautifully from more depressive black metal sections (which are actually wonderfully done) to clean vocal driven shoegaze dreamfests. Definitely a band to look for, if these songs are any indication, this band will do great things on future releases.

Shyy's side is okay if a bit forgettable, but ... rule pretty hard on here, contributing a winning combination of depressive bm, shoegaze, and awesome cleans.
