Successor to the "soft-psych masterpiece" Acedia, Communion takes a meditative turn, offering minimal post-rock vistas that touch on drone and black metal. Gone is much of the delicate acoustic guitar work and confessional lyrics in favor of lengthy, mostly instrumental pieces that explore bleak, lonely landscapes.
A Statement To Exclaim!
"Communion began in the aftermath of my father's passing and I had a hard time personally. I recorded it mostly at night in my bedroom. Musically these songs possess a glacial, mountainous, almost monolithic quality that reflected my mood and state of mind. Recording these songs, I found myself exploring the metaphysical nature of life, my deeply religious upbringing, solitude, dependency and detachment from others, confusion/anxiety and subconsciously craving to disconnect and yearn for a more pastoral existence."
