Conceived as a plausible, albeit logistically complex idea - Pariso and Svalbard have not only spurred each other to deliver their best material to date, but also teamed up for 2 fully collaborative tracks - written and refined almost as new bands unto themselves – with each featuring a different combination of members, alongside all three vocalists.
When left to their own devices, Svalbard turn in their most vibrant recordings to date, with newfound clarity giving added emphasis to the emotional weight that their unique post-genredefinition-core possesses. Pariso delve into a lower tuning, flirting mercilessly with elements of stoner-rock, black metal and dissonant hardcore, yet definably themselves.
Wrapped in thought-provoking, potentially disturbing, artwork courtesy of Daniel P. Carter that reflects the darker tone of the music contained - this is an album that emphatically displays the coming together of kindred spirits, whilst giving a triumphantly kaleidoscopic view of where these bands could be heading next.
