absolutely loving this new, more natural sound. their first albums always had an intentionally cold feel to them, which i enjoyed, but this new sunlight-filled album really comes into it's own.
they keep the mix tight and blurred but now the natural feel of a live drummer is more pronounced.
this is how the mighty EARTH AND PILLARS needed to sound.
crazy good album, and old fans will find this a refreshing new sound. Glitzy Límon
If Earth ever wanted to send a message out to us, IJsval would be it. A premonition two years in the making about the haunting realities we're facing today: raging forest fires, melting ice caps, flooding, pandemics, political upheaval etc. We all know what happens when we ignore warnings, then we should know the devestating consequences that entail. Hats off to Asgrauw for creating something truly remarkable and eerily coincidental. metalheadchris
