Aquilus...where have you been hiding all this time? My recent discovery of multiple bands and albums just goes to show that I know so little about the Metal realm. Rivaling two giants I so admire, Agalloch and Opeth, this group brings instrumental and black metal together in a way I was unaware. Powerful and magickal, these Australian born gods paint with sounds and strings. Australia has brought me much rich and deep Metal, like my favorites, Be'Lakor. Enjoy this soft beginning as it energizes and unwinds into so much more. This weeks going to be an epic one!
Walking in fawn
Bereft and lovelorn
O burning horizon how voluptuous you are
Forgotten in time these moments shall succumb
Cast through a gossamer cloak
Aethereal lamplight drapes your hoary fane
I am those ruins, decaying in the rain
My heart aflame bequeathed to dirt
A harrowing aculeus bedighted in fawn
THE MAD BARRON
"It takes a certain kind of madness to trek alone into the wilds however I find it far safer and less stressful compared to the trappings of cities and men."
