Mereka bersembunyi begitu jauh setinggi awan
Di sekelilingnya pagar-pagar bertebaran,
kepala-kepala manusia-manusia tak bersalah
Berserakan nama-nama pejuang
Pejuang-pejuang yang dilupakan
Di tengah-tengahnya kolam hitam
Pekat akan sisa-sisa bangkai perang dan pertikaian
Berceceran bekas darah
Darah-darah manusia tak bernama
Masa depan yang terarah

It was a bit too much and samey by the end for me, but if you like dark atmospheres, if you are really interested in sound design or you enjoy the challenge of music that tries to wear you down, you should definitely check this record out.
I loved the echo-drenched drums and percussion and synths and hard to describe sounds on this, but it stays with the same sonic ideas for too long for me to enjoy to try to withstand the harsh wall of sounds minisculebarber
At points, this reminds me of the bands that defined early chillwave, like Ducktails, Memory Tapes, or Predator Vision; the guitars are similarly reverb-y and chorus-drenched, chords splashing out lazily and slow, swaggers subverted into saunters. However, the Eastern melodic flavor gives this more of an overtly mystical aesthetic, and the instrumentation and compositional elements are far more exotic and interesting. Highly recommended.
