A very dark, and atmospheric sounding synth starts off the album along with some heavy guitars a few seconds later that also takes the music into a doom metal direction which they also mix in with the atmospheric parts at times and you can hear violins in certain sections of the recording as well as a great amount of death metal growls.
Black metal screams can be heard in some parts of the songs along with a small amount of spoken word parts and a great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length and when female vocals are used they give the album more of an operatic feeling while the solos and leads are very melodic and demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill.
At times the music can be very symphonic and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and on some of the tracks a small amount of classical guitars can be heard along with a few instrumentals and the whole album also sticks to a slow musical direction from beginning to end of the recording and on the last track a small amount of saxophones are utilized.
Crimson Sky plays a gothic style of doom/death metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's and also brings in a touch of death metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover nature, sadness and existence.
In my opinion Crimson Sky are a very great sounding gothic doom/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spirit Mind Wraith" "Ember Of Deities" and "Beyond Senses". 8 out of 10.
