SPIRE (aus) "Entropy" LP

Ambient black metal.

Each track, no matter how long or short, is epic in itself which says a great deal about how the musicians composed and crafted the music and constructed the whole thing - not just the actual song itself but its atmosphere, the effects that flesh it out into a three-dimensional beast - so that the entire structure is a soaring monstrous creature of unlimited malevolence, magnificent in its clear and crisp sound, and utter crystalline coldness.

The best thing about the album is its immersive nature, how it sounds so much like a real hellish world where pain, despair and lack of hope reign, that it almost feels more physical than the actual world we live in.
