“Where the Cloven Fires” EP was a two song masterpiece of Black Metal, “Secret Ambrosian Fire” is slices of Neofolk bread that surrounds those two tracks in a perfect moody sandwich.
From Dungeon Synthy wanderings to ambitious ambient rituals to traditional Death in June style drone pieces “Secret Ambrosian Fire” is a feverish journey into impeccable musicianship and ritual composition. The Black Metal tracks add an almost bipolar aspect to the otherwise fairly uniform album. But that one, two vicious attack keeps the album feeling complete and fresh. (Travis N)
