Orphans of Dusk - Spleen FR-114


A green shell with black ink and hand-numbered, double sided 7-panel sleeve in a crystal clear case. Comes with a download code. Limited to 50 copies.

This Winter, Orphans of Dusk opens their goth-doom gasket again, coming back to life to present “Spleen,” their haunting new album. Spreading its vice over 8 songs, Spleen’s full length duration enables the band, over the course of 50 minutes, to bring listeners further into their sublime dark universe, pushing further all facets that gave its identity in the first place. Spleen picks up where Revenant left off, immediately displaying a well produced record and melodies that will immediately find its place in many gothic and doom music libraries. On Spleen, Orphans of Dusk however chooses to focus less on the previous atmospheric death-doom elements, and more on the gothic vocals and guitar harmonies. As a result, Spleen hits like a stake through the heart – it is the band’s most mature offering to date, and one that should gather the world’s gothic-doom scene’s attention.
