Matthew Parmenter - What a fantastic voice this guy has. Deep, resonant and terrifically melancholy; somewhat reminiscent of Peter Hammill. It perfectly matches the mood of the music, which itself is also very dark and melancholy. A mixture of dark songs and dark instrumentals which mix well to give an intensely enjoyable package. The sound is acoustic piano driven dark neo prog. Highly recommended.
