Master of Alchemy I think that this composition is my favourite of Earthmass' so far, despite, in my opinion, the production being not quite as good as their previous releases. Overall, the triptych of Spectral Gate has more in the psychedelic side of things, having an expanded spacier vibe, as well as a more emotional expression, but those really heavy moments are still here, too. Worth noting that Spectral Gate (Keep, Relic & Ritual) is a completely different set to Lunar Dawn (Keep, Relic & Ritual). Favorite track: Ritual.

E'sPsychedelicBreakfast I hoped for new songs by Earthmass for a long time. Ironically I just found out that they actually did release new stuff in 2018 now. I really love all their records but if I had to choose a favorite I'd probably say this is it. I like the climactic nature of the record. It starts with a mezmerizing tune and constantly builds up until it reaches its peak near the end. Definitely one of those way too overlooked bands in the genre!

JT EXTREME The book-ended album arrangement is to be revered, and the cosmic forces at play are sure to cause a massive swell Favorite track: Relic.

Joel Fernandes Oh my! This is probably my favorite Earthmass record so far, and that's saying something, considering how great they all are!
But be honest here....did you, or did you not sample the Icarus I distress beacon from "Sunshine" during "Ritual"? Favorite track: Ritual.

Herbert West Heavy, spacey, psychedelic metal, in the vein of Spaceslug and Yuri Gagarin. So good! Favorite track: Ritual.

Inside the hall, ghosts of them all. Lost lives; all mine. Selves left behind. Before the Shrine, make peace with time. I bow my head. I'm all but dead.

Chasmal! A chamber echoing with sorrow. Across the hall, the eyes of many ages follow. Ashes! The air is vaporised cadaver. Relic, portal; a doorway leading to forever.

As the shadow creeps beyond my vision, growing longer, I will turn to face the dying star up in the sky. I'm forgetting all the wonder and the memory of you, as I learn to face the paradox of you and I. There's a beauty in the gloom that always overthrows me. I return to start the end of everything in me. And now all the waves come crashing down and I am drowning. Is this deepest water or is this infinity?
