gojimag84 An uncompromising wall of despair with wicked sounds to compliment. This is a masterpiece, both in concept and in sound. Favorite track: Stygian I: From Tumultuous Heavens… (Descended Forth The Ceaseless Darkness).

THORmonger71 This is the bleakest concept album I've yet encountered, telling the tale of a nameless knight cursed with immortality due to a divine sword he acquired, eventually roaming a dead, sunless world with stars dying out overhead. No release for this knight. The music provides the soundtrack: cold atmospherics and dense funeral doom. If you can't buy a physical copy, at least look up scans of the album art, as the story contained in it adds so much to this desolate tale. Favorite track: Stygian I: From Tumultuous Heavens… (Descended Forth The Ceaseless Darkness).

about

From the frozen northlands Atramentus unveil the icebound agony of the monolithic ‘Stygian’. Birthed on a cold winter night in 2012 and during an autumnal sunset in 2013, the cursed tale remained dormant for years, only recently being put to tape so the nameless knight’s saga could be told.

Granted immortality through the gift of the God’s sword, the nameless knight eventually witnesses the death of the sun and the end of all life on Earth. Surviving the great deluge, he is left to wander amongst the ruins of a now frozen earth under a sunless sky for eternity, alone and unable to die even by the scorching-cold blizzard winds around him, enduring perpetual physical torture while haunted by the memories of his past life and everyone he once knew buried under miles of ice.

Each of the three epic songs contained within differ widely to reflect the changing of autumn to perpetual winter. While adorned in the language of Extreme Funeral Doom and Dark Ambient soundscape, Atramentus owe further debt to Epic Doom Metal in sound and aesthetic and Black Metal’s anguished ferocity. But always the arc of Atramentus remains bound to the tumultuous melancholy and guttural immensity of Extreme Doom.
