Brit Harvey Does not reinvent the Atmo black metal wheel , but certainly turns the dial enough to make it very refreshing and different . Love the opening acoustics , and the acoustic transition in the middle of the track. Just beautifully played . A powerful piece of music that I think would serve as an excellent entry example for those wanting to explore the Atmospheric black metal genre. Favorite track: Apocalyptic Witchcraft.

Inspired by the book of the same name by Peter Grey, Apocalyptic Witchcraft was composed as a cyclical sigil for meditation and ritual, a harmonious bonding of folk and black metal that reflects a return to a balanced mind and body. Faced with a greater quantity and rate of disparate influences than ever, it is important that we claim ourselves and our needs as sacred, that we carve out time and space to practice whatever form our craft takes, that which strengthens us and our connection to nature.

We as artists must not create esoteric art in order to alienate others, but rather to remind those who feel ostracized that they are not alone. There is peace in that, however small it may seem at times.

With that in mind, I mark Samhain with this release and honor the memory of TG whose spirit and humor will never be lost.
