I find it hard to put into words how incredible this EP is. Dark, yet hopeful. This album is pretty much everything I love about doom metal, but with the sludge scrubbed away. If you like your doom soul-crushingly heavy, I don't think this will be exactly for you, but IMO its the best mix of doom with what one might call more "traditional" heavy metal, particularly in the cleaner vocals.
Favorite track: Specter of Ruin.
