Ohio's LUASA RAELON sounds like fog. Subtle swells of brooding and pervasive sound that sink into you. It's dark but totally comforting - that is until "Glorious Times" hits like a jolt of lightning, crashing to earth with the nuance of a bulldozer. While the final two tracks fall more in line with the opening of Beyond The Gates, the cacophonous interlude between the first and last segments shines a more sinister light on the final two compositions. A powerful audio journey.
