This is a beautifully scorching multilayered atmospheric black metal album that I loved at first listen and still grows on me even more with every spin. From beginning to end it doesnt let up with the riffs and the multi howl attack. Im looking forward to the next one and really anything Mare Cognitum is involved in. stevenbeverage
Like the winter landscape of the cover, this black metal group are less about bludgeon and speed, and more about stark, frozen atmosphere - no better exemplified than in the melancholy beauty of opener "Cold".
None's sound reminds me a little of Taake, but the ambient synth parts could have come out of a lot of 90s era television shows that were horror or thriller based. A terrific debut. nightskald
