---The Enlightenment---

Hailing from the cities of Toronto, Philadelphia, and Cincinnati come amongst one of the strangest music creation composed. I am sure it is quite difficult to communicate and let alone callaborate on a musical being from different areas. Despite, they manage to capture the imagination quite well and at a above average caliber for the sound they go for. Whilst Efferat has some releases from the past, this is my first encounter with this elusive band. It surely took many listens for this to sink in but when the sound did, it was a dark yet awe experiencing journey.  These guys have talent.

The music is all over the place in sound, it has its dark moments, as well as its starry, dreamy, and dreary moments.  The experimental, ambient, noise, drone, sound and post black musicianship collide in good harmony and unleashes lots of memorable moments throughout. Krila nerodenog pauze s neba is a perfect example of this.  It's probably my favorite track on the album for its dark, mysterious yet beautiful and calming sound.  It won me over as a sound, but no discredit to the other tracks. The last track I was fond of as well as the music made images in my mind as some sort of ceremony to Bakusar.

All in all, not too bad.  If they go in the direction of  krila nerodenog pauze s neba, it would be amazing but I'm sure the band still has a lot to learn regardless of taste.  Yes, they might be experimental all over the place, but it's the kind that stays with you and makes you want to hear just a bit more.  Good efforts for the band.  I do believe that they can accomplish a bit more and hopefully we won't have to wait another two years.  Good band with good experimental taste.  Looking forward to their future.
