“Animals don't behave like men. If they have to fight, they fight; and if they have to kill they kill. But they don't sit down and set their wits to work to devise ways of spoiling other creatures' lives and hurting them. They have dignity and animality.”
"All the world will be your enemy, Prince of a Thousand enemies. And whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first, they must catch you; digger, listener, runner. Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed".
Мне обычно тяжёло даётся слушать группы, любящие вот эти песни на 15-20 минут с переходами от тягучего сладжевого звучания до пост-рока и акустических пассажей, какими бы красивыми они не были, но в данном конкретном случае - последние 2 альбома на топовом уровне, возможно даже круче Культ оф Луна в ее лучшие годы.
first listened to 'em in 2014, didn't think much of their music.. sporadically tried to get into 'em in subsequent years but their music didn't click with me until yesterday when I tried for a final time. and after having listened to their entire discography, it's safe to say, even though I'm pretty late to the party.. they are indeed gods of neocrust
But, now you come here, and you say: "guys, give me a piece of eternal sadness." But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call us Godsofneocrust. Instead, you come into our house and you ask us to do a reunion and sing to you for money...
Some would call them overly dark or cheesy emotional, but to me that's really what makes this band. That unfiltered, raw emotion and relentless dark atmosphere. It's just amazing story telling. Someone saying this band's boring or cheesy is exactly the same person calling an arthouse movie boring or unexciting. Just because it's not what you're looking for doesn't mean it's not good.

The compilation boxset "The Warren of Snares" released by the band contained a 16-page booklet containing a narrative form of the lyrical concept for the band, based off of Watership Down by Richard Adams. If you'd like, you can read the story of Fall of Efrafa here:
