VELNIAS – Scion of Aether, Gatefold CD
A radiant crucible upon the oblivion horizon, VELNIAS conjures the reflection of the infinite aether within the fractal self. VELNIAS' timely return bears with it the indomitable Scion of Aether.While carrying the torch of VELNIAS’ trademark "Oppressive Rocky-Mountain Dirge," this latest effort expands upon their body of work with a confident maturing of the sound that is wholly their own. Laden with cascading dynamics through deft build-ups in texture and progression, the album dramatically traverses emotive soundscapes and explodes into engulfing heaviness. These transitions, paired with the seamless interplay of the instrumentation required for such skillful craft, are compounded through the composition of Scion of Aether.
