This is an interesting metal release that has an ambient mood that overwhelms the listener. The arrangement of this one song certainly delves into progressive territory at all times and has a structure that baffles and compels simultaneously. There is an alternation between mellow sections and a more abrasive mindset that continuously keeps the listener glued to their seat. Instrumentally, the music here is always exciting and tastefully performed.
I actually came to an appreciation of the disc on a similar level to the classics of progressive rock and that's because the ability to write an intriguing song is at a similar premium. The track here builds up in a crescendo that is appropriate considering it is the only one on the EP. Furia has the ability to craft an impressive atmosphere that progressively enraptures the listener in a web of magic. The black metal aspect of the music isn't particularly prominent and comes through most greatly in the vocals, which display a characteristic black metal rasp. If there is an obvious fault to the release it's that there isn't enough on it. The song ends very quickly and the listener is left with a taste in their mouth that leaves them craving for more. I suppose that is the point of an EP, though, isn't it?
This band is able to do more with one song than many are able to do with an entire album, so the quality of the music to be found more than makes up for its length. I was left satisfied with the music after listening to it and that's very important.
