Originally released in 2013, Sol is the acclaimed conceptual split album which contributed to establish SPECTRAL LORE and MARE COGNITUM within today's atmospheric black metal scene. A scene that they helped to develop, bringing in new and exciting stimuli together with a daring, progressive approach, transforming and transcending black metal without betraying its primary nature: that of a probe to plumb the human microcosm reflected in macrocosmic abysses. Far from being a typical split album, Sol is a collaboration on many levels, starting from the conceptual and moving on to the musical. Themes and riffs have been cross-referenced and transfigured, structures have been put in proportion, lyrics have been written in parallel. Conceptually, Sol is an attempt at a kind of cosmological philosophy; searching the vast, cold expanses of the universes for traces of meaning and purpose. What it is out there that is fundamental, absolute and shared? What can we learn about ourselves by looking outward, to the void and the inanimate? The bands reintroduce those important questions once again, thanks to the long-awaited and remastered reissue of Sol, an album that already made the history of atmospheric black metal. Pressed on "gamma ray burst" colored vinyl.
