5 stars A perfect swan song for ex-Emperor Ihsahn and star of ash's Ihriel's project. Booting Lord PZ was definately an improvement for the act, as Ihriel's haunting singting are woven perfectly with Ihsahn's demonic spitty screams or his melodramatic opera-ish tenor. The music is a mixture of dark ambient with moments of metal riffs. The title track is energetic, despite "moribund" meaning "dying", and "A Penny's Worth of Heart" is disturbing and moody. "For Those who Died" is a Bathory cover that is carried out competently and beautifully. There is a video for the title track, too, that is worth watching, although I don't quite get the guy in the chair screaming in pain. The best Peccatum and sadly, the last.
