AllMusic Review by James Christopher Monger
The fifth long-player from the brooding and cavernous Pacific Northwest-based metal outfit, The Serpent & the Sphere, the first set of new material from the group since 2010's critically acclaimed The Marrow of the Spirit, opens with the epic "Birth and Death of the Pillars of Creation," a ten-minute slab of churning, slow-burn black folk-metal that rolls in like the thickest fog ever and decimates everything that it comes in contact with, a metaphor that applies to the remaining eight songs as well. The album was produced and engineered by hard rock legend Billy Anderson and released via Profound Lore Records.
