First real metal album I've listened to. Has a dark and gritty atmosphere and some pretty good instrumentation.

The Mantle is a companion to cold, desolate walks through a north american forest during the harsh but quiet winter. It's no surprise the album takes inspiration from cynical european black metal, desolate dark ambient, and chilling neofolk. The Mantle molds all of this into a masterful one-piece package and it pulls no punches.

It's not every day you make a discovery like this. Utterly perfect. Elegant. Cold and somber. Warm and inviting. Beautiful.

Amazing. I had never been a fan of growling vocals, but this album has changed that. It's a brilliant masterpiece.
