It seems Hypnotic Dirge starts fishing in East European waters, I guess the collaboration with Solitude Productions had its share of influence on this matter, especially since Ukraine and Russia are so rich in doomy, depressive bands. Windbruch already released a split on Hypnotic Dirge and they extended their contract with this second full-length, the first being released by Romanian Sun & Moon Records in 2009. Windbruch seems to borrow / mix elements from Funeral Doom, Dark Ambient, Post Black Metal and Depressive Black Metal, and the final result is really oppressive, hope-shattering and even claustrophobic; it's not the most technically impressive release, but the atmospheres Windbruch manages to create are worth your while if you're into the above mentioned genres. An interesting feature of its music is that although all tracks are different one from another, the overall album sounds curdled and following a sole idea. 

Rating: 7.5/10
