Atmospheric Black Metal Cat
The Wolves in the Throne Room Influence is there , but tons of bands draw inspiration from that well, and justifiably so. These guys sound very original , and the emotion conveyed through their music on this release is powerful.
Favorite track: Glow Beyond the Ridgeline.
This is Woman is the Earth's second record (the first proper album) written over the course of three years. Much time and effort was put into writing and recording the album to uphold the original conception of the music. In addition to guitars and drums, a variety of instruments were used, including a Roland Juno-60, bass guitar, classical guitar & ocarina. The album reflects a yearning to reconnect with the spirit of the natural world in a time when that connection is quickly dissolving.

Super interesting mix of bluegrass and atmospheric black metal. Just enough of each to stay interesting and the samples add a nice atmosphere. If you are into concept records and have an open mind you should dig it Jason Torres

A fuzzy, dreamy and epic experience.
I discovered and loved this album years back when it initially came out and had only downloaded it via Bandcamp. Now I've rediscovered it recently and got reminded how much of an atmo black metal staple it is. Donating for it and adding it to my Bandcamp collection seemed as a must.
Melodic, cascading riffs and (often) hidden melodies, guided by very well programmed drum beats and ghastly vocals. Truly wonderful.

This is still and by far one of the best black metal albums I've heard. It's rough, it's pure, it's cold and emotional to a point where everything starts to overwhelm you at once.
The bluegrass influence was new for me but it made it even more credible. Listen to The Long Road Part 1-3 and tell me your not stunned and blown away by this sheer amount of melancholic storytelling. Marcel Faust
