After the "Horrors of the Unknown" tour in fall 2015, it was clear to many that the friendship between Bloodway and Valborg was something truly special. In January, while Valborg was in Bucharest for a concert, the two bands met, composed and recorded a song together, "Karbon Winter". Few months later a second song entitled "Ashes", was worked out by only the bands' guitarists. So, this way, this digital EP got born.

When I found Batushka and discovered that they split, I was definitely broken hearted. Then I found this. I can truly see who is the heart of the original Batushka and Drabikowski is that. The whole entire album is great from start to finish. Listen to it in one sitting in the dark or with your eyes closed. Top notch! Lanna E
