Both bands are on the top of their game right now, which makes a shared release between them all the more exciting. You can feel the ideas and the pure joy of recording and wanting to play live through these two songs. Twenty minutes extremely well spent.
Instrumental albums of this titanic quality are rare, and should be treasured by all.
‘Portals of Futility’ is an album of extremes. Usnea have far more in the tank, and – just maybe – a stone cold classic hiding in their future.
