Sultry fuzz from Alba on this one... we love it.

Some different vocal harmony slants grow on you over time.

Simplest track of the lot with unique 60's era harmonies.

Blissful doom here with majestic spiraling fretwork... wish it was longer.
5. Lamentations (3:24)
Creepy and illusive.
6. Labyrinth (3:47)
70s inspired vocal melodies on this one, cool "Batman" like fretwork in the beginning.
7. Duna (3:19)
Wild build-up on this track with a powerful close.
8. Liturgy (4:14)
Marching forward movement that spirals out to soothing closure.
Female trio from Spain deliver some raw and dark perspectives on their second full-length.
Album has a very classic and authentic feel. Cool production makes for a very warm, steady and calming effect.
Alba's fuzzy fretwork combined with the sultry vocals of Carmen and Marga make for a very engrossing piece of work
Overall... very steady and soothing album.
