Nihilism: The rejection of all religious and moral principles in the belief that life is meaningless.

That's how I feel every now and again. Nothing I do makes sense, relationships seem meaningless, life has no structure- it is all a joke, a pointless joke. Nothing matters: status nor happiness. This album sums all of that up. I sense an acceptance of the natural order and a willingness to ride it out for good or for bad. Slithers of enjoyment shoot through the blackness, like veins of silver in a deep claustrophobic mine. Flickering orange light illuminates the danger of sharp surfaces and sheer drops before the blackness returns. This is a progression from the last album (Pale& Sick), still deeply textured and nuanced and balanced. The production is not over egged, every sound and silence is laid down in the right place, and paced perfectly. There is a cold, metallic airiness about the album reminiscent of Pale & Sick. The track Collection Of Shadows is just 4 minutes and 36 seconds of pure groovy tension. Dream House has a spot of Depeche Mode about it, Skeletons are Dancing has a floating eerie grace about it. My Hibernation kicks in with a hypnotic assertive drum beat accentuated by a fluid and milky keyboard that weaves in and out like a nervous tic. This album has a lot going for it and it gets better and better with each listen. I am hopefully wondering if this could be number two in a triptych of albums that work on 3 interconnected themes.
