Leviathan - A Silhouette in Splinters (2005)


Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Leviathan - Ten (2001)

Haunting, evocative dark ambient from one of the US' finest BM acts. Amazingly, he's as good at making dark ambient as he is at making black metal. A Silhouette in Splinters was actually the first Leviathan record I heard, and I'm still holding out hope that he'll make something along these lines again.

Track listing:
1. A Silhouette in Splinters
2. It Comes in Whispers: Part 2
3. Blood Red and True: Part 2 (A Spell to Vanquish Sea Serpents)
4. Traveling Over the Ocean's Skull
5. Particular Dis-Ease
6. Shimmering with Horn of Woe

Dead except the eyes

More along these lines:
Aghast - Hexerei im
Zwielicht der Finsternis
(1995)
Kerovnian -
Far Beyond, Before the Time (1999)

  1. I'm sure you've checked out his Lurker of Chalice project as well? Loved that album.
