They call it “post-industrial blackened romantigaze.” It’s a fair try at describing an album which lyrically tackles nightmares, devils and death itself, while the mood remains voyeuristic, introverted, and calm. Rohner Segnitz’s steady, consistent delivery is often hidden behind cascading walls of sound, softening the dark visions with grand aural gestures (see “Malachite” and “My Prisoner”). It may soften the blow, but adds to the weight: this is a serious record. And seriously good.
