The Truth
3 stars A violently beautiful effort by a very talented band. Wing Of Lead Over Dormant Seas is a haunting listen to say the least.

Although it drags on perhaps a bit too long (two hours) every note in the album is filled with raw beauty that floods the listeners senses like some kind of mechanical liquid beast. The great mix between the gentle nature-like sound of post rock and the mechanical and dark post- metal really give the album it's enticing effect and it is one to enjoy.

Every track is at least somewhat strong (which is a hard thing to do in two hours time) and the only true flaw is definitely the length of the album. I'm not usually one to complain about such silly things but if the disks were released seperately I think it would have been a lot more effective.

A wonderful album nonetheless, if you love obscure post-metal or just want to try something great this album is for you.

The Truth | 3/5 |
