Clock sounds and keyboards start off the album bringing in touches of classical music and there is also a brief use of female vocals and after awhile ambient elements are added onto the recording along with a great amount of heavy guitars while some songs are also very industrial and avant garde influenced.
Male vocals can also be heard at times and some songs also bring in traces of goth and post rock and every track sounds different from each other while one song introduces acoustic guitars onto the recording and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts can be heard along with the riffing getting more melodic and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful and some of the songs are all instrumental and towards the end violins are also utilized briefly.
Lord Agheros moves away from the ambient style of black metal from previous recordings and have evolved more into a post or avant garde style metal project, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, political and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Lord Agheros and while some black metal fans might not like it, I can still see this album appealing to fans of avant garde and post metal. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lake Water" "Life And Death" "On the Shore" and "Final Death". 8 out of 10.
