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

Zwielicht der Finsternis

Far Beyond, Before the Time (1999)


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

    1. Yup, that album's maybe my favorite of his
