Numenorean Home on Limited Edition LP
With Home, Numenorean has crafted a musical masterpiece that embraces beauty, harshness, brutality, and melancholy in equal measure and transforms those ingredients into breathtaking melodies and riffs. The Canadian post-black metal act achieved far more with their debut than just following a musical path pioneered by Deafhaven, Alcest, Wolves in the Throne Room and Der Weg Einer Freiheit. This album challenges to delve deeper, get lost in feverish dreams, and its haunting beauty beckons to again and again come...Home!
Vocalist/guitarist Byron Lemley comments on behalf of Numenorean: "Our title track 'Home', along with most of the album, sounds like the darkest and most heart wrenching parts of Lifelover, Deafheaven and Hypothermia, mixed with the progressive atmospheric metal of Enslaved and Agalloch. All of this thrown into a melting pot with complete vocal vulnerability has created something we never thought possible. This song is a very essential starting point and glimpse into the entirety of emotional ups and downs this album has to offer over the course of its 44 minute journey into the abyss."
