3 stars I have a certain association between this EP and the EP "Faustian echoes" by Agalloch because of their similarities:

1. They both represent return to a great shape and more earthy, original sound with growling vocals. 2. The EPs were released almost in the same year 3. These are epic and high quality epic pieces that symbolize the longest track in band's history.

My dying bride may have felt the guilt of releasing a non-working experiment "Evinta" that featured symphonic re-covers of their famous melodies, which may have been well accepted by non-metal fans but divided the traditional fans. Maybe as an apology, the band pulled out this epic masterpiece.

Low-tuned guitars, dramatic drums and whimsical growling help imagine dark moor with evil monstre. However there are enough slow reflective and mournful parts, especially in the first half of the track. The last 5 minutes are pretty intense with black and death-metal echoes.
