The title of the email in which this arrived used the word “devastating” to describe it, which is a word I always associate with being told a member of my immediate family has been stung to death by hornets.

The album itself is a decent slice of black metal infused, slow doom, which is not nearly as good as the music made by the band Fen. Please follow this link to see for yourself:
