Dave Aftandilian Wandering alone in the greenwood, I hear the voice of our Mother speaking softly in rustling leaves, falling rain, distant creatures howling. But as I listen longer I also hear her screams of rage roaring at thick-firred hillsides raped and stripped bare, at aquatic sisters choking on the black bile of the pollution we dump in their rivers. Tears streaming down my face I scream with her, rend bloody welts in my face as we have done to her, then bare my teeth and turn to defend our one true home.

Mark W. It was well worth the wait for this album. I was getting irritated and worried that it got pushed back, but here we are. Brother Mills never disappoints, and only gets better with each release. God bless brother, and to everyone else involved in the recording of this album.

Visionary Vials of Wrath's newest album delivers forty minutes of cold yet detailed and intimate atmospheric black metal. The drums undergird the melodies admirably, and the dynamic between the acoustic and electric guitar passages is seamless and lovely. DC Mills varies his vocal style to excellent effect, even utilizing spoken word on the transition track "Reflections of an Old Soul." A few moments on this album sound slightly too much like certain Agalloch songs--but who's complaining?
