This will be the shortest review I ever did… Owl mastermind Kolf created a true masterpiece. Epic, deep, and brutally honest. “Orion Fenix” peels your skin off and overcomes with emotions that truly touch the core. This is true melodic Doom magic. Unbelievably thick and smooth at the same time. I bow down!

“Mirror Reaper” by Bell Witch is a fantastic, progressive, melancholic piece of art. A cohesive 83 minute masterpiece, as moving as the album art itself. Full of atmosphere, and cold, suicidal anguish. Crushing lyrics and so heavy, it’s also beautiful. Seperated on two discs, titled “As Above”, and “So Below”, it is a labour to listen to the first time around. But it sucks you in. The chant like harmonies and the atmospheres are powerful and mind blowing. “Mirror Reaper” is to Funeral Doom Metal what ‚ÄěDopesmoker” by Sleep is to Stoner Metal. An anthem, an epic. Perfection.
