Recorded at London’s Berry Street Studio, the self-produced mini-album’s five songs concentrate on Britain’s rich history of supernatural and occult-based tales of murderous hauntings, possession, witchcraft & insanity.
Calling on influences such as Fields of the Nephilim, David Sylvian & Einstürzende Neubauten, it also marks the group’s concerted effort to explore different approaches to songwriting, as frontman Hal Sinden explains:
“Though rooted in extreme metal, TALANAS has always been about creating specific atmospheres regardless of the genre of the result. In this instance, we wanted to make sure we could still invoke the same esotericism without having to rely on volume and distortion, especially since James sodding Blunt has come back out of retirement, whilst getting a chance to work with some truly great guest musicians.”
