Dungeon synth and ambient folk flashes
1. The Horned Skulls of Sayre (4:55)
The opener is the most conventional track of the lot. More doom and sludge characteristics. Distant distorted vocals set the ominous stage. “source of power” cool melodic lyric.
2. The Rougarou (3:50)
Black curtains cover this plodding entrance into battle. Stark turn into the depths of black metal
3. Finding the Nest (2:40)E
Eerie twilight zone electronica. Bizarre placement. We like it.
4. Guns, Knives, or Pepper Spray (2:36)
Old school industrial undercurrent, punk hardcore vocal style, swing into the darkness
5. Against the Sunrise (1:31)
Post-metal synth interlude
6. Bone and Blood (1:28)
Abrasive and to the point
7. For She Hath Rebelled (2:44)
Closure to track 3. Offbeat electronica highlighting something uncomfortable approaching
