Originally released on July 8th 2016. The EP is a six-track tour-de-force that melds Black Metal with acoustic and ambient-like stylings, resulting in a truly unique sound.
The Tracks of the Hunted takes the fury and darkness of Black Metal and transforms it into something both beautiful and menacing at the same time. This EP demands a full and immersive listen. Piano and acoustic guitar are front and center for much of this record, weaving around a central pillar of majestic Metal which draws from Enslaved and Opeth in influence while the softer moments recall Agalloch’s experimentation. Broad chested chants blend with snarls and fierce guitar lines.
