"Ah Ciliz are a violently calm sea of tremolo picking that builds the rough anarchy of evil within a beautiful and dark atmosphere. A lot of bands within Black Metal stick to doing this well but where Ah Ciliz really start to make their music their own is the layers to which song is told. Changing tempos and withdrawing to an icey wind. Sounding at times very progressive in their approach but certainly a faded atmosphere to an otherwise distorted violence. The melodic power to an atmosphere that forever remains interesting immediately grabs the band attention.
Chiral are both the perfect companion and a complete change to Ah Ciliz. Coming in like a slow burning fire, the same atmospheric melodies and tremolo picking enables a fierceness that recalls Winterfylleth’s intensity and melody. Instead of breaking to a chilling air, Chiral bring forth interestingly tuned drums and sound effects that give a layer on top of their evil sounding melodies. Recalling the experimentation, you’d find in bands like Arcturus whilst bringing the melody of early Troll to blend it all together. Not many Black Metal bands can do this so masterfully. It is somehow more violent than Ah Ciliz whilst being just as atmospheric. Closing with an epic, ‘Queen of the Settling Sun’ just feels like a coup de grace for Chiral. They go all out, symphonic backing a haunting nature to build to a violent streak of raw Black Metal intensity."
