Elegi: "Sistereis" (Miasmah) is a womblike, cavernous open-wide vista of a soundworld populated by eerie atmospherics, mournful, longing and regretful meanings. It's difficult to inject a bit of humour into something as serious, overwrought and melancholic as this. It's like an elegy to Moby Dick with Captain Ahab's tears filling an ocean with his outpourings. Aquatic references aside, this is a sort of collision of modern classical composition and almost gothic rock theatrics married to drifting, lilting swoon-songs.
