Recorded at French Drudenhaus Studio with Benoît Roux and written in bursts both during and after a prolonged period of touring in support of 2016's hugely successful 'Kodama,' the new and very cathartic album is leading the blackgaze pioneers into dark soundscapes. The artwork was once again designed by Førtifem.
