In case you still weren't convinced of the Atmospheric tag, then this EP is the release for you. Only two tracks here, but they are written in such an overwhelming way, these tracks will actually speak to you. What they will say depends on the person, but as for me, I get a strong air of melancholy and nostalgia from these tracks. I can't say exactly what I'm feeling, but it certainly tugs at the ol' heart strings in one way or another. Full of synths, other various instruments and sad, doomy riffing, this is definitely a very unique and powerful masterpiece. There are a lot more clean (spoken) vocals on this EP than in previous releases, but I think it goes very well with the music and helps add to the incredible imagery that is bound to bleed into your mind. Somewhat different from older Sceptical Schizo, this definitely marks their transition into the style they were going to play as Lavra.
Enough said, just listen to this and be blown away.
