They have always been masters of dramatic ambience, which songs such as the beautifully crafted “Humane” perfectly emphasize while gradually building into a mesmerizing track, before eventually exploding into a sonic ascension of grace and breathtaking power. The mournful key-based intro of “All Things Pass” leads into the dark and bleak facets of Oh Hiroshima’s epic sound universe, whereas songs such as the haunting “Ascension” – with its glistening guitar lines and the otherworldly voice of Jakob Hemström – leave you lost in a sphere of sadness mixed with light and hope, matching the imposing sonic melancholy of the track and throughout the record.
Once again mixed and mastered by Cult Of Luna’s Magnus Lindberg, with Myriad, Oh Hiroshima demonstrate outstanding ability – melding captivating melody with epic, fulminating fervency, and delivering a majestic post-rock masterpiece which will undoubtedly be an early album of the year contender!
