Simply beautiful. A mix of black metal and interesting acoustic passages. I hope they return to this sound after their acoustic release (enchanted by the blooming echo).

After four years dormancy, Deep Mountains, the Atmospheric Black Metal band from Taian, China now comes back with their new studio album Lake of Solace. These new album adds many new elements and more silent, smouldering, and sad Acoustic tracks while maintains its atmospheric and magnificence. The first version is Deluxe 8-panel digipak, limited 500 copies. Will only be 200 copies sold in non-China area.

This is slowly becoming one of my all time favourite albums. This is a perfect blueprint for a concept album, it's just one big piece, the songs flow together like butter. Melodies from the beginning come back later but in a different context, the atmosphere of the album is ever moving between the calm beauty of a mountain landscape and the harshness of a cold freezing snowstorm. I hope there will be a CD or Vinyl reissue sometime since I discovered it to late :/ Sumarbrander
