4 stars There is not another band out there that can evoke the feeling of ritual and danger through acoustic music like Comus can. From the start of the album to the closing notes it feels as if you are witness at an ancient pagan ritual about to take place. But through all the darkness and dread there are moments of pure beauty on this album in tracks like The Herald. After I first heard this album I started on a journey that will never reach an end in trying to find another band similar to Comus. Comus is a completely unique band and they created an album that stands alone. Mixed with sometimes demonic male singing and scattered screams and yelps and sections of soothing but menacing female vocals layered on top of some of the most organic sounding acoustic instruments I've heard. One very important thing about this album is that it never suffers from uninspired or forced melodies everything is perfectly placed to honor the music and its concept. This music is heavily conceptual and not for faint of heart it drags you in on the strength of the songs and then opens you up to so much more once you've taken that step.
