Only the Youngest Grave is dedicated to life, dreams and death.
The disparity of melody and dissonance and how they affect each other.
Overall, the album experiments with drone, ambient, ritual, tribal, jazz, noise, neofolk, post-rock, tape music and vinyl manipulation.
Disc One, Oneiric, is more visceral, alive, feeling.
Disc Two, Lethean, is largely reflective, droning, wandering.
Disc One: Oneiric
II. Abject Lust of God
III. First Chant: Waxing, Waning Moon
IV. Aura of Silent Moors and their Chambers
V. Stuttering Sinews
VI. Second Chant: Blood In the Shells
VII. Bodies Falling
Disc Two: Lethean
I. The Spirit Meets the Skin
II. Final Chant: Stygian Cessation
III. Noose In the Afterglow
IV. Dense Swells In Cold Earth Devour
V. Blood Communion to the Port Saint
Hail the stuttering sinews of God’s inorganic promise.
