Stringed instruments along with keyboards start off the album and the music also brings in a great amount of both ambient and experimental beats while also adding tribal beats into certain sections of the recording and the music also gets very ritualistic at times and the keyboards also add a bunch of diversity.
When drum beats are utilized they give the songs a more militant feeling and there is also a brief use of goth style female vocals along with a touch of industrial and a lot of the tracks are instrumental and as the album progresses acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and when flutes are brought into the music they add in a touch of folk music and a later track also adds in male neo folk style singing and a couple of the tracks is very long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts.
My Silent Wake move away from their doom/death beginnings and goes for more of a mixture of ambient, experimental and folk on this recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from My Silent Wake and if you are a fan of ambient, experimental and neo folk, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bleak Spring" "The Fear" "You Drift Away" and "Return Of The Lost At Sea". 8 out of 10.
