The creation of the atmosphere is increasingly effective, and the morbid insinuations that goes along its sinister harmonies are astoundingly intense. The pace of the songs are generally very slow, but the sound is not monotonous at all – there is a hallucinating device that keeps growing all the way through, as grows in your mind the impression that you are sinking through a voracious dark tunnel, towards the deepest corners of the earth. As darkness enters you, the overall consistency of the sound penetrates into your soul, and liberates your heterogeneous zone of fears.
The album is very intelligent and bright at the evaluation and creation of its degrading, sordid, ambiguous, fearful atmosphere. Since the rhythms of the songs in general have little to no variation, the uniformity of the sound keeps your mood low through the dark process of the glaciation of your conscience. Nevertheless, the group do maintain an elaborate sonorous diagram of pervasive paradigms, keeping a labyrinth of sound that leaves your conscience wondering alone in the everlasting darkness of a world faded to disappear.
While I wouldn’t consider this album a masterpiece, it is certainly effective and marvelously competent displaying the sovereignty of its disruptive intentions, as to know, the consolidation of a dark atmosphere of fear and demise. Undoubtedly, Flammarion will be more appreciated between devoted followers of the genre; nonetheless, the record has enough qualities to captivate slow dark metal enthusiasts everywhere.
