As a fan of cinematic music and Morricone, I should have had an easier time with this. However, I would compare it to Entropia’s Vacuum in that both are the musical deep end of progressive black metal, and for me at least require much investment to really grasp. It took a while to appreciate Faunalia, but this is indeed one of the best metal records put out in the last decade. True experimental madness that will hopefully influence the coming generation of black metal bands. Brian3737

I really like SELVANS and their original and fresh approach to integrate ancient folk and spirits into melodic black metal. Somehow I missed this collaborative EP, but now this gap is closed. Especially "Mater Universi" is an epic masterpiece, but the whole album in total is a tight concept from the same mould. Beautiful! H.L.
