Digital Album [Name-your-price]

Tracklisting:
1 - Eye of Solitude - Collapse (16:14)
2 - Marche Funèbre - Darkness (14:11)

"I feel this is a very great sounding split and would recommend to all fans of blackened doom, funeral doom and atmospheric doom/death metal. 8/10" - Bringer of Death zine

"The split between these two bands contain two long tracks, both of which are very, very good. One of them just resonated with me more than the other; perhaps when you listen, it will be the other way around. Either way, the fact remains that Eye of Solitude and Marche Funébre have put out an incredible split that should be heard." - Brutalitopia
