Just found Nechochwen and don’t know how I missed these guys, but sure am glad I found them. In these times it’s good to find things that inspire you and Nechochwen truly inspire with this album and others I’ve heard so far. Thanks Aaron and co. for doing what you do. Skyhook and Heart of Akamon are my favorites (so far) love all the diverse instrumentation.
Favorite track: Skyhook.
Ho-lee-SHIT this is fantastic. Less BM elements and definitely more melody, but to the betterment of the whole album's atmosphere. And that last track, an absolute masterpiece.
Favorite track: Kišelamakong.
