somewhere integrated into the brittle fibers of our world and the metaphysical lie tones only transmutable by instruments of esoteric origin. WESTERING, a one-man project, wields this mystical knowledge and uses it to breach through a void of swirling, dark ambience and into a mixture of breathtaking, shoegazing black metal. “HELP A BODY” opens up w “WE BURIED HIM PRECIOUSLY”, a sanctuary of shoegaze that shimmers even in the foreboding presence of WESTERING’s black metal collusion. the contrast of beautiful and bestial continues throughout the extent of the album in transitory ambient passages like “ONLY FOREVER”, “TO LURCH AND FALL”, and “VESTIGES” – into the mesmerically bleak, black metal-tinged tracks like “AND OLD CONFUSION”, “GESTURES IN THE DARK”, and stand-out “WHITE HAIRED”. not dissimilar from a melding of COLD BODY RADIATION & CLAIR CASSIS, i believe fans of either act will appreciate the expansive coalescing of sounds in this rather obscure medium of tenebrific “blackgaze”.
