Oh where do i begin... I've been counting the days to the release of ordeal... Shrines last two albums where already brilliant pieces of art but only once every couple of years you come across an album that sends shivers down your spine and takes you on a vivid imaginary trip.
The world we live in is in imminent danger; climate change, war and political turmoil are part of every day news. For me, ordeal hands temporary relief of these fears, why should we not just embrace the end and accept the pestilence humanity has bought upon itself? Let's just stare into the abyss.
Ordeal is a beautiful temporary escape from reality, an amazing piece of music.
