fulcizombie Great album that would have been better as a 50 minutes album. I found “passage” and the first 5 minutes of “eternal” very monotonous. The chilling intro of the album and the 22 minute “Wander” that follows it are the highlights. Not strictly atmospheric black metal, more like just atmospheric metal. Only the vocals remind me of black metal. Great album to listen on a rainy day with headphones.. Favorite track: Wander.

Master of Muppets Incredibly immersive atmospheric black metal, right up there with Nyss and ROSK. This one is best experienced front to back through headphones, preferably somewhere dark. The emotional buildups and resultant explosions from chilling clean passages into pvre black filth are delivered flawlessly, such that even the 22 minute track manages to keep the listener captivated all throughout. Favorite track: Wander.

about

Seedna from Sweden are changing the perception of the black metal genre. They've crafted a beautiful full length album that's intuitively tempered with harsh as well as soothing moments, taking influences from outside the genre but blending it in flawlessly. The 'hourglass' on the cover symbolizes the continuation of life after death; the album is strangely nostalgic yet refreshing, as if we're getting back memories of a past birth. There's the familiarity of the black metal genre but a tingling sense of freshness to it, which makes you want to experience it to the fullest, live life all over again. The album, with its well-timed alternating interludes, only embraces you completely, as you begin to lose track of time and reality. This one shatters the binding norms and creates music that elevates the soul to new realms. Almost akin to a spiritual journey, 'Forlorn' is full of revelations, as you go unprepared but expecting perchance a life-redeeming experience, one that will bring you closer to the attainment of nirvana.
