Rated 2/5 (40%) (4 Votes)

Originally an acoustic, ambient project, October Falls have morphed over time into an epic Black Metal band that still retains a lot of their melodic, acoustic root sound mixed in. This is an album full of really involving melodic tremolo and acoustic riffing that sometimes even manages to sweep you away. The songwriting is not as solid as the riff writing, and so sometimes these songs just seem to go on without a lot in the way of structure. I like long songs, but even I have to admit that the compositions on this album tend toward being a bit shapeless. The atmosphere here is not as good as I would like, either. It's hard to pin down why, but a general melancholic approach does not really make for a solid mood, and even though I like this album, I couldn't tell you what it's about. If you like this kind of expansive, melodic stuff, then this is a good bet, but it won't blow your mind.
