NYC's Mavradoxa play this intricate brand of atmospheric black metal that fans of bands like Agalloch and Falls of Rauros will be more than familiar with. 4 songs that exceed 10 minutes plus in length are book ended by two beautiful instrumental tracks that provide a nice opening and closing moment for the album. With the lengthiness of the tracks, some people won't give this one much of a chance which would be a shame. Each song is a musical journey through a wondrous landscape that the band creates with their lyrics and music. You really have to take your time to listen to this one to appreciate it but when you do, it will become a part of you, refusing to let you go from its beautifully complex clutches. This album will definitely show up on year end lists throughout the heavy metal world.
